  • 3 fresh rosemary sprigs

This mushroom bourguignon recipe with creamy celeriac mash can make a lovely weeknight dinner. Replacing beef with juicy chestnut mushrooms and exotic dried mushrooms adds earthy richness to this comforting vegetarian stew.


Serves Four
For the mushroom bourguignon
10g dried mushrooms
175ml vegetable stock, made with ½ stock cube
2 tbsp. oil
650g chestnut mushrooms, larger mushrooms halved
10 small shallots, peeled but kept whole
250g Chantenay carrots, larger carrots cut in half horizontally
2 garlic cloves, finely sliced
1 tbsp. fresh thyme leaves
1 tbsp. tomato purée
2 tbsp. plain flour
200ml burgundy wine
1 tbsp. butter, softened
For the celeriac mash
2 celeriac, peeled and roughly chopped
3 garlic cloves
700ml milk
1 tbsp. wholegrain mustard

1. Add the dried mushrooms to the hot stock and leave to infuse. Heat 1 tbsp. oil in a large casserole dish. Add the chestnut mushrooms and fry for 4-5 minutes until golden. Remove from the pan.
2. Add the remaining oil and fry the shallots and carrots for 8-10 minutes until starting to soften. Add the garlic, thyme and tomato purée and cook for a further 1 minute. Return the chestnut mushrooms to the pan with 1 tbsp. flour and cook for 1 minute. Add the burgundy wine, vegetable stock and dried mushrooms. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 20 minutes.
3. Mix the remaining flour with the butter and add to the sauce. Continue to simmer for 10 minutes until the sauce is thick and glossy. Season well.
4. Meanwhile, put the celeriac and garlic in a large saucepan and cover with the milk. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes until the celeriac is soft. Drain, reserving the milk. Return the celeriac to the pan and add 100ml of the reserved milk and the mustard. Mash. Serve the mash with the bourguignon on top.

Oh, wow, this looks delicious. Another one to bookmark.
I've never actually used celeriac so that will be a good first, and we've got some chestnuts waiting in the cupboard for the right recipe.
