If you’re not a fan of Doctor Who, you won’t know what I’m talking about, but if you are… you’ll know what I mean when I tell you that the humble Celeriac is know as an “Ood” in our house! They just look like them, don’t they? And “Ood” is so easy to say.
We’ve had an Ood in our veg box every week this month so I have needed to be creative in coming up with things to do with them.
Here are three ideas… or is that Ood-eas… (sorry!)
1 Ood (Celeriac)
Soy sauce/ Tamari/ Miso
Cut the Ood into manageable pieces and spiralize into a large bowl.
Marinate with the rest of the ingredients to taste.
Best served about an hour after making so all the flavours have mingled.
Ooh… lovely! =)
We compromise here sometimes by partially cooking part of a meal.
Here, I’ve gently steamed the Ood in the process of creating a soft mash.
Chop your Ood and place in the food processor with the S-blade. Process until it is kibbled into small pieces.
Transfer the kibbled Ood into a sieve and place over a pan of boiling water for a few minutes with a plate over the top.
Stir regularly. The steam will escape around the top of the sieve and gently steam the Ood.
Transfer the steamed Ood to a bowl. Mash with a potato masher and season to taste.
This warm dish is a great complement to the rest of the meal, especially on a really cold night.
Another warm dish for the winter months
1/2 Ood (Celeriac)
Liquid (nut milk/ water, stock) as required
Chop the vegetables and then kibble in a food processor (omit this step if you have a high-speed blender)
Transfer to a blender and add the rest of the ingredients.
Blend until the mixture is as smooth as possible.
Warm in a pan over a low heat unit blood temperature is reached.
I like to sprinkle dried seaweed, dried leek and nutritional yeast on mine!
