Calories: 448


  • 4 lean smoked gammon steaks each about 7 oz
  • 16 - 20 midi plum tomatoes on the vine halved
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

for the mash:

  • 1 lb swede
  • 6 spring onions finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 3 1/2 oz very low fat natural fromage frais
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

to garnish:

  • roughly torn basil leaves


  • First prepare the mash. Cut the peel from the swede and roughly chop the flesh into small chunks. Cook in boiling water for 12 - 15 minutes until tender.
  • Meanwhile, mix the spring onions, chopped herbs and fromage frais together in a bowl.
  • Preheat the grill. Lay the gammon steaks on a foil-lined large grill pan and place the tomatoes around them. Season and grill for 6-8 minutes, turning the steaks halfway through grilling.
  • When the swede is cooked, drain it thoroughly, then mash. Add the fromage frais mixture and combine well. Season and keep warm.
  • To serve, place the gammon steaks on warmed plates with the grilled tomatoes. Spoon the herb mash alongside and serve immediately, garnished with basil.

Cook's notes

  • Midi plum tomatoes are larger than baby ones, but smaller than the standard variety. If unobtainable, use 8 ordinary plum tomatoes, halved, instead.
  • To vary the flavour of the mash, try using celeriac in place of swede.
