  • 800g celeriac, peeled- about 1.2kg whole



    The unsung hero of the vegetable world, knobbly, odd-shaped celeriac has a subtle, celery-like…

  • 10g garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • good grating of fresh nutmeg



    One of the most useful of spices for both sweet and savoury

  • 4 x 100g skinless salmon fillets
  • 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 500g green bean


  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Slice the celeriac as thinly as you can – quartering it first will help. Find a baking dish that will hold all the celeriac, then add a layer before scattering with some garlic, thyme and seasoning. Repeat layers, finishing on a celeriac layer.

  2. Mix the stock cube with 450ml boiling water, season with nutmeg, then pour over the celeriac. Bake for about 1 hr 15 mins – pressing the celeriac into the dish so that it stays submerged and soaks up the stock – until a skewer poked in goes in easily, and the top is crisp.

  3. When the gratin has 15 mins to go, sit the salmon on a baking parchment-lined baking sheet. Mix the mustard with some ground black pepper and a little salt, and brush over the fillets. Bake with the gratin for 12-15 mins until cooked just through.

  4. Meanwhile, cook the beans in boiling water until tender, drain well and season. Divide into 4 equal portions along with the gratin, and serve with the salmon.

Whilst we did enjoy this dish the celeriac gratin didn't really work. It didn't look like the picture, more like white celeriac bobbing about in liquid. However now being converted to the celeriac taste we will try more recipes with this in and also perhaps work on tweaking this particular recipe, maybe more celeriac or less liquid?

I make lots of meals using Good Food recipes and usually love them. Not this one I'm afraid. To be fair salmon is not my favourite fish but it was the gratin that I really didn't like. Just too much celeriac and garlic (and I used half the recommended amount...). Would have been much nicer with at least 1/2 potato but the calorie content would suffer significantly of course.

Delicious! Can't believe it's only 262 calories!

Unfortunately this dish didn't do it for me, sadly. I was really looking forward to having it for dinner, but all the different elements just didn't really quite go together. I like the idea of the celeriac gratin, so I might make that again to go with a different protein.
