    Use it in fish cakes where the taste of the other stuff will perhaps mask the smash a wee bit?

    Some people use it as a thickening agent in soups/stews. sauces, just enough to thicken up the liquid constituents.

    I've made smash pizza bases which are fab (there are lots of recipes on the recipe forum)
    Plus I always use it in my stews/curries/casseroles etc as a thickener, particularly when I'm cooking in my slow cooker as the liquid doesn't reduce down - I find it's much better than flour (which is obviously incredibly synful) plus gives a lovely texture to the sauce/gravy.

    The other thing I've used Smash for is as a coating for onion bhajis (again recipe is on the recipe forum somewhere). I didn't really get on with them but might be worth a try?

    ive seen a recipe somewhere, i think it was on Minis where you can use it as a kind of pastry to make a pie case? might be worth a try xx
