Creamy Celeriac Mash


Celeriac is an often-under-appreciated root vegetable that can really add some flavour to a roast, pie or gratin. Here’s a great introductory recipe from Delicious Magazine for this unsung hero, providing a great side dish for a weekday dinner or weekend lunch.


2 celeriac, peeled and cut into chunks
3 garlic cloves
600ml whole milk
Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
Pinch of ground ginger
Splash of double cream
Knob of butter
Small bunch of fresh flatleaf parsley, chopped


1. Place the celeriac and garlic in a pan with just enough milk to cover, and a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil, put a lid on the pan, then simmer gently for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Drain any remaining milk and reserve.

2. Using a stick blender, whizz the celeriac to make a purée, pouring in just enough of the reserved milk to give a smooth consistency. Add the spices, cream and butter, then whizz again. Stir through the parsley, season to taste and serve./
