I’ll confess – I was originally making celeriac soup, but it ended up as a sort of mashed potato like variation.
With just the addition of some fried onion, salt and pepper, this versatile dish makes an excellent addition to any dinner with lots of veg sides or as a different replacement for mashed potato.

-2 large celeriacs -one large onion -olive oil -200-400ml boiled water -dash of salt and pepper
- Preheat the oven to 200C. Peel the celeriacs and cut them into think pieces. Place them on a non-stick roasting tray, dribble olive oil over the top, and roast in the oven for about 15 minutes, or until just starting to turn crisp. Leave to cool.
- Slice the onion and fry in olive oil until golden brown.
- In a food processor, add the celeriac and the fried onion. Blitz.
- Add a little of the boiling water and blitz again. Continue to add boiling water until you get a mashed potato looking consistency. Add the salt and pepper and blitz again.
- Tip the contents of the food processor into a non-stick deep based pan and bring to the boil.
- Serve hot or cold.
Tip: why not add some freshly picked herbs? Thyme, oregano, rosemary, coriander, parsley, sage, lemongrass…
Ps. roasted celeriac sliced thinly can make great chips.
