How to use leftover celeriac

  • Garlicky celeriac mash. Peel and roughly chop 2 celeriac and 400g maris piper potatoes. Boil in a pan of salted water with 3 bashed garlic cloves for 15-20 minutes until tender. Drain, discard the garlic, then mash the celeriac with a large knob of butter and a splash of single use cream. Add a couple of handfuls of baby leaf spinach , stir until wilted, then season. Sprinkle with grated nutmeg to serve.
  • Celeriac and apple slaw. Peel and cut 100g carrots, 1 red apple and 1/2 large celeriac into thin matchsticks. Combine in a mixing bowl with 1/2 shredded red cabbage and 1/2 very finely chopped red onion. In a separate mixing bowl, combine 150ml good quality mayonnaise, the juice of 1 lemon and 1 tsp dijon mustard. Season well, then mix into the vegetables and serve with cold cuts.
