The classics are the best – especially if you can spruce them up a little bit whilst still respecting the dish. This combo of medium rare quality fillet steak with buttery Chestnut Mushrooms and Artichoke infused (and topped) Sweet Potato Mash is divine! The Artichoke puree brings an earthiness to the Sweet Potato mash. The Chestnut Mushrooms bring life and character to the beef. Tenderstem Broccoli has all the goodness of Broccoli, but in a more delicate and refined texture. But all would be for nothing if it wasn’t for the natural goodness that comes from eating a quality piece of fillet steak. Happy gut, happy tastebuds… happy you! 😋
For a smaller portion, drop to 180g Steak, 200g Sweet Potato, 20g Artichoke Puree and 8h Butter. This will save you 294 calories without sacrificing the flavour or experience whatsoever.
