Fuss free fresh vegetables from Mash Direct 

Published May 25, 2017 by Bizzimummy

I do love my big roast dinners with mash, vegetables, meat and sides but it’s such a pain in the butt preparing and cooking it all from fresh. All the peeling, slicing, drizzling, chopping, boiling, steaming etc it just takes too much effort and the kitchen gets all hot and sweaty. 

Mash direct provides a fuss free solution to this problem by selling fresh vegetables pre cut and peeled and packaged and in many cases pre cooked too . They started with mash but now have a long list of fresh vegetable products.

Here are just a few of them! 


And yes they even have their own mugs too, so I can have a brew with my dinner. 

Mash direct grow all the vegetables and make the products on their own farm and many of the products can be found in Morrisons.

I have never heard of or tried a potato rosti. It is lightly fried potato with shredded onion formed into a round Pattie. 


I enjoyed the rosti, it certainly makes a nice alternative to the usual chips or roast potatoes and the onion gives it a natural flavour.  

Another alternative to chips could be the carrot & parsnip fries. These were lovely, with a natural sweetness and pre fried ready to go in the oven. 


I remember being given potato croquettes when younger which were quite nice. Since then the varieties of croquette I’ve tried have not been that nice (always frozen varieties) but Mash directs version are fresh and so taste just like the ones I had when younger. 


I was slightly unsure on the crispy vegetable bakes. I had tried some vegetarian veg cakes a few years back and was not too impressed but yet again Mash Direct proved us all wrong and again they are really tasty. They contain a fair amount of mixed vegetables – cooked potato, broccoli, carrot, cauliflower, spring cabbage & parsnip all of which is coated in a crispy golden crumb. 


The taste actually reminded me of a well known childhood dish – bubble & squeak. My dad would always make too much mash and veg on a Sunday and we usually had bubble & squeak for supper or as part of a meal the following day.

Finally we have the Cauliflower cheese gratin.


I don’t like or eat cheese so I didn’t eat this one myself. My daughter Jordanna does eat cheese and cauliflower and enjoyed it very much. 

These fresh prepared vegetable products are really good. Obviously just as healthy as preparing my own but totally fuss free. They just need putting in the oven or under a grill. Some of them come in foil trays so the tray can be placed straight in the oven. They taste great, save time and generate less rubbish and mess. 


I think I will definitely continue to buy and use mash direct products as my two girls also seem to enjoy the vegetables too. I am hoping they will be sold in more stores and supermarkets soon.
