What a strange looking vegetable! It is a root vegetable from the celery family. It is great mashed, roasted in the oven, raw in a salad or cut into matchstick strips, served with a creamy dressing.


My favourite way of serving celeriac is: Garlic and Celeriac Mash

1 medium head celeriac
3 medium potatoes
3 cloves garlic, peeled & crushed
1 tablespoon olive oil
25 g butter
50ml milk
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Salt & pepper to taste
Optional: 50g Cheddar, grated

Peel the celeriac and potatoes. Chop into rough chunks.

Boil together for 20 minutes, or until soft. Drain and set aside.

Heat the oil and butter in the potato pan. Add the garlic and sauté gently until soft.

Add the milk, salt, pepper and mustard and mix well.

Return the potatoes and to the pan and mash well until smooth.

Add the Cheddar, if using, and mix well.

Serves 4




  1. Please tell me – do you make this celeriac recipe regularly?
    Kind regards

  2. Yes, Melinda. It is a really tasty way of using the vegetable. Easy to cook. I often serve it with steak.
    Kind regards
