salad mash smash

in this case spicy roasted butternut

otherwise maybe broth-boiled potato
or herby steamed sweet potato (add sauteed cherry tomatoes pretty please with cherry tomato on top)

get soft but not soupy

if not vegan I recommend lots of butter in the mix, garlic butter better

then just mix up with chopped lettuce

roast seeds on top only always
sunflower, pumpkin, pine if fancy
even butternut seeds if you do ’em right

smashing like pumpkins indeed
