Somehow I forget about celeriac in my weekly shopping and so I thought it was about the time to make the most of this root veggie while it’s still in season. Last time I remember baking celeriac chips was about a year ago! And so I bought one huge celeriac at Farmer’s Market last Saturday and made a big pot of Celeriac Mash, just to make up for it. I’ve added few spices-cardamom, ginger and cloves for some warmth and coziness and topped it with sauteed portobello and shiitaki mushrooms. I have to say it’s one satisfying bowl of goodness.
The recipe is super simple and quick, celeriac only needs about 20 minutes to boil. While the celeriac is simmering you can prepare and saute the mushrooms and the dish can be ready within half an hour. I’ve topped mine with plenty of chopped fresh parsley and some toasted almonds for some extra protein, but it also gives it that little bit of extra flavour and crunch. You can happily eat this as a main meal or if you prefer have as a side dish. Hope you’ll enjoy this one:)
