Veggie Quest 2008

The veggie of the week is:

CELERIAC


Weird, knobbly-looking thing it is. But not bad in a celeriac, potato and garlic mash.

We had it for dinner, topped with lamb loin (backstraps), which I prepared with this rub:

Salt
Garlic
Lemon zest
Dried oregano
Dried thyme

Mixed it, rubbed it on the lamb, left it for an hour, then browned the meat quickly on all sides and baked for 10 minutes. Rest, slice, bang it on top of the mash, add some veggies on the side and try not to gobble it down in 2 minutes flat.

It's noice, it's different, it's unusual.....

Apparently, you can use celeriac in salads too - I saw a recipe somewhere for a Waldorf-type salad, where it was substituted for celery.

I have wondered what you do with celeriac- and now I know! The question is- would you do it again???

Kek said...

Yes, Linda, I probably would. Although I think I'll give the salad thing a go first.

I'm eyeing off a rocket, fennel and blood orange salad recipe at the moment...
