Risotto-style celeriac


Risotto-style celeriac
In this recipe, the celeriac is cooked rather like for a risotto: diced small, softened in olive oil with onion, then cooked in chicken stock.

The dish is finished with cream and maybe a little cancoillotte (or other creamy cheese). It is delicious on its own or to accompany meat.

Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 20 min.
Risotto-style celeriac : Photo of step #1
Peel and rinse 1 celeriac, then cut into small dice.

There's no doubt about it, this is a tedious job, so use a mandolin if possible to make life easier.

Stage 2 - 5 min.

Prepare 1 onion and chop finely.

Stage 3 - 2 min.

Pour 4 tablespoons olive oil into a large saucepan on medium heat. When good and hot, add the chopped onion.

Salt, pepper, and cook for 1 or 2 minutes without colouring.

Stage 4 - 3 min.

Stage 6 - 10 min.

If there is any liquid left after the celeriac is cooked, drain this off.

Your risotto-style celeraic is ready. Serve on its own or to accompany meat.

Remarks

You can miss out adding the cancoillotte in stage 8, or use another cheese if you prefer, either grated (Parmesan, Comté...) or a soft-paste cheese such as Époisse or Mont d'Or.

If you don't have chicken stock, use a vegetable stock instead.
