Sweet potato mash with sauerkraut

The vegetables do all the work in this recipe and combine lots of different flavours. The sweetness of the apple balances the sauerkraut and the mushrooms add a nice umami taste. Even someone who usually doesn't like sauerkraut liked it. The portions are quite big because sauerkraut comes in packs of 500 g.
