    As title. Need to do something simple and interesting with a celeriac with/for dinner tonight (usually it goes into soups, but ICBA making soup).

    Suggestions? Main or side.

    Ta.

    Lightly fried (or is it steamed?) with pasta and mozarella/fresh basil.

    Celearic mash is really nice, make it as normal mash add in some cooked onion strips and then a little bit of light chedder melted on the top, nice with anything i find.

    you could do that as a side or you could cook up some cod/white fish and mix that in as big chunks for a brandad of a kind would be nice.

    remoulade!

    it makes really nice chips [ with horseradish or garlic mayo ]

    or you can shred it into salads for a bit of crunch and taste

    Cheers.

    Having thought about what else is in the fridge, I think I’ll make a chilli tonight. So celeriac mash would make a suitable idiet way-of-eating-that-dare-not-speak-its-name friendly dish.

    *has a think about what else is in the cupboard*

    Don’t boil it in water. It soaks water up like a sponge and makes really awful mash. Basically put enough milk in the pan to cover the celeriac (sometimes nice to throw a clove or two of garlic too) then cook as a normal mash or even better as a puree if you have the right tools. Loads of butter and milk/cream, excellent.

    Remoulade is a definite favourite of mine too.

    It’s lovely in a gratin with double cream, anchovies, rosemary, black pepper.

    That’s what I’ve doing with mine this week anyway.

    Yotam Otolenghi’s Celeriac and Beetroot Gratin was very tasty last night as main course. A bit involved though.

    Was similar to this recipe

    Dairy isn’t happening.

    I’ve found this Jamie Oliver recipe which looks like it could work:

    Remoulade involves mayonnaise. Never been a massive fan of mayo….

    If you want to use it as a side dish then make a simple romescu style dip.

    Roast the celeriac with some aubergine,red peppers,one clove of garlic and a few tomatoes. Fry up some hazelnuts or pinenuts.
    Peel the peppers when they´re done and blitz the lot in a food processor with some olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste.

    Yes it soaks up more water than potatoes but I’ve not found it to be a problem. Makes great mash IMO. YMMV. I suppose you could steam it otherwise.

    OP: butter and (proper) cream are not particularly insulinogenic so are OK on the forbidden diet (unless you happen to be intolerant of course!)

    At the Village Hotel I had sea bass with fennel, it appeared to be fried up, and it was served with a soy sauce and chilli dressing/sauce and some watercress. It’s delicious!

    I just slice it thinly and give it some lemon juice and decent olive oil, often have that with chilli.

    Cubed and fried with lardons and honey, which is halfway to a rabbit and cider stew in this house.

    For the fennel, slice, fry in butter til it starts browning then add chicken stock. Juice of half a lemon stirred in just before serving.

    Peel then Cut into thin wedges. Chuck in oven dish, cover with olive oil by shaking about, then loads of curry powder and roast for about 40 minutes. Par boil for 3 minutes before roasting if you are in a rush.

    Zilog – interesting.

    Molly – have done it with seabass before. Classic recipe.

    I fear I may have put the fried cubes into too much water (300ml). Let’s see….

    Since it wasn’t mashed, but smashed*, its consistency was odd. Not as dry as mashed potato. Was just made with garlic, salt and pepper and tasted bloody great with the chilli I knocked up.

    Leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Slowly getting back into cooking and eating properly. Spent all evening in the kitchen near enough (except when running Toddler North’s bath, lighting the fire, speaking/emailing/texting with my boss several times). Just sat down..!
