Whole baked celeriac with walnuts & blue cheese
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 8
Full of flavour and texture, this seasonal side goes well with a Sunday roast. The soft celeriac, strong blue cheese and crunchy walnuts are a match made in heaven
- STEP 1
- STEP 2
Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. In a bowl, toss the walnuts, thyme and blue cheese together, then pack into the cavity – don’t worry if the filling sticks out of the top. Next, lay out a sheet of tin foil large enough to cover the celeriac. Put the celeriac in the middle, dot the butter on top and around it, then drizzle with honey and sprinkle with salt. Wrap the celeriac in the foil, making sure there are no gaps, and roast for 1 hr 15 mins or until soft. Once cooked, open the foil and roast for a further 15 mins until golden. Serve the celeriac on a chopping board and reserve the juices in a dish to spoon over.
