Lovely side dish and so easy for two or more. I added swede to the combination. I'd certainly eat it again. I served it with roast chicken, boulangere potatoes and sprouts. It hit the right spot for sure

These were really nice, I enjoyed using the celeriac as never had before (it has quite a nutty, coconut smell to it). However would next time cook for a little less time or on a slightly lower heat as they were maybe just slightly overdone.

Beautiful! Served with roast leg of lamb - not a scrap left, enjoyed by all. Will make these again.

Used what we'd got - leeks instead of celeriac and golden syrup replaced honey. A light dusting of nutmeg too and it was absolutely delicious. Great accompaniment to Boxing Day dinner.

Awesome recipe! Made it yesterday. Used baby carrots - they turned out divine. Did not have celeriac (but definitely trying it next time), but added cloves of garlic in after having fried parsnips and carrots (cloves peeled but not cut). Roasted garlic added amazing smell and was delicious! Thank you for the recipe - it is a keeper!

I've been making this side dish for years and it always goes down well. Have even managed to convert a non parsnip eater since making them try it.

Amidst an almost disastorous christmas dinner - these turned out brilliantly, everyone loved them and they're apparenly fool proof!

The hardest part of this was peeling the veg, but we all loved it, especially the celeriac, never tasted it before, will be having it again, it was all lush!

I've made this at Christmas every year since you printed it because everyone loves it! You can prep it ahead and the veg has a lovely earthy sweetness.

Can this be frozen? If so, what is the best way to re-heat?
