  1. Boil a pan of water and add the potatoes and turnips, which have been peeled and thinly sliced (3 mm thick): parboil for 5-10 minutes.
  2. In a separate large pot, heat the oil.
  3. Slice the onions, garlic and chillis into thin slices and add to the pot - fry for 5 minutes.
  4. Add the drained potatoes and turnips to the onion mix and fry for a further 5 minutes.
  5. Add the cream, vegetable stock, cardamom, nutmeg, black pepper and let simmer for 5 minutes.
  6. Add the dandelion greens and stir until they are wilted. Then remove the pan from the heat and set aside.
  7. In a large mixing bowl, rub the flour, oats, butter and grated cheese together until they have a crumbly texture.
