VEG IN SEASON, WHAT TO DO WITH CELERIAC



Have you ever looked at this ugly looking veg in the supermarket at this time of year and wondered what on earth would you do with that. Well here are some ideas.

Celeriac is a member of the celery family and has a flavour of celery, but if you don’t like celery don’t give up on it, the flavour is much more complex and the texture is deliciously creamy. It works really well in soups and as a mash mixed with potato. It is also deliciously crunchy raw in a salad. It is full of vitamins so well worth a try at this time of year.

Here are two recipe ideas that will use up a full head of celeriac if you want to give it a try.

Leek, Potato and Celeriac Soup

Ingredients

2 leeks,

½ head of celeriac

1 onion

2 medium potatoes

1.2 litres of vegetable stock

2 table spoons of butter or vegetable oil

Salt Pepper

Chop all veg into roughly evenly sized pieces (2” cube)

Add oil or butter to pan

Add veg and sweat over a low heat (tip keep your butter papers to form a lid on the soup that allows veg to sweat and carmalise a bit) otherwise use a greaproof paper lid on top of veg to sweat for 10 minutes.

Add vegetable stock and cook until all veg are soft. Blend with a hand blender.

1/4 head of white cabbage
