Celeriac has to be my favourite winter vegetable. This dish, although delicious by itself, would also make a great side dish on Christmas Day.
Serves 2 as a main or 4 as a side dish
-1 small celeriac root, peeled
-200ml double cream
-1 garlic clove
-1 bay leaf
-Salt, pepper, freshly grated nutmeg
1. Preheat oven to 200C. Chop the celeriac into 2mm slices. Heat the milk and the cream in a pan with the bay leaf, salt, pepper, nutmeg, and garlic. Tip in the celeriac slices and stir. Simmer for 10 minutes.
2. Grease an ovenproof dish and pour in the contents of the pan. Transfer to the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until browned.
