Celariac and Walnut Gratin : Low Carb

Celeriac & walnut gratin

This dish can make a great vegetarian main meal - it can be prepared hours in advance, too. But some may prefer to cook and enjoy it with some chicken or pork... as always the choice is yours. Per serving the carb count is 4g, many low carbers feature celeriac in their menu plans.

1 large celeriac
2 tbsp walnut oil
300ml vegetable stock
handful chopped walnuts
100g blue cheese, such as bleu d'Auvergne or Stilton

Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5.

Peel, quarter and very thinly slice the celeriac - this is best done with the slicing blade of a food processor.
Toss in the walnut oil, salt and pepper, and spread over a gratin dish.
Pour over the stock and bake for 40-45 mins, then sprinkle with the walnuts, crumble over the cheese, then cook for 15 mins until crisp and golden.

Serves up to 6

It looks lovely. I can't get Mick to eat vegetarian, he doesn't think he's had a meal unless there's some meat on his plate.

I wanted to buy a rutabaga last week but they looked AWFUL. Just dreadful. However, the organic kale was a delight. Yum.

Have a great weekend and boogie boogie.

Hi Jo, thanks for your comment.
How about serving this up with some chicken? They compliment each other quite nicely ...

All the best Jan

Hello Ivy - sorry the rutabaga you wanted to buy were not too good ... but Kale is definitely yummy. I like it sauteed like here ... but kale chips/crisps can make a nice change too!

Enjoy the rest of Friday (well it's Friday afternoon as I type this) and have a good weekend too.

All the best Jan

This looks really good but I think the addition of chicken would be great!!

Hi Debbie - yes this does make a great side dish of vegetables, it goes with chicken very well.

Have a good weekend, and thanks for all your comments on the low carb diabetic blog.

All the best Jan

I put my kale in the skillet as well. And I also make a pesto with it for over zukes. So yummy and also in soup, of course in soup.

Got myself a good rutabaga the other day. Gonna make a mash (zero dairy) to go with marylands (leg/thighs attached). See how we like it.

Wishing you the best.

Oh my gosh, and I got a pineapple the other day too, to die for. So flippin' good. And the organic parsley was heavenly as well.

I love ingredient shopping.

Hello Ivy - it's good to use Kale in as many recipe ideas as possible, it is a very nutritious vegetable. It is a very good source of vitamin B6, dietary fiber, calcium, potassium, vitamin E, vitamin B2, iron, magnesium, vitamin B1, omega-3 fatty acids phosphorus, protein, folate, and niacin ...

So pleased you were able to get a good rutabaga - your mash and marylands idea sounds good to me. Enjoy it.

All the best Jan

Hi again Ivy ... meant to include this with my earlier response!
You have done well with your ingredients shopping, I'm pleased - you love your cooking / baking.

... I'm still trying to get used to the flying bat LOL!

Wishing you a great weekend - well it is Friday night as I type this.

All the best Jan
