Thyme and celeriac mash

At Local Food Market Co, we’re all for simple recipes that require minimum effort and deliver maximum taste. Nothing could be easier than this tasty thyme and celery mash, which is full of unexpected flavours and perfectly accompanies many meat—and vegetable-centred dishes.

This dish utilises a slow cooker to gently cook the potatoes and celeriac and a blender to combine all the ingredients effortlessly. This method ensures that the preparation is straightforward and requires minimal effort.

One of the best aspects of this recipe is its simplicity and use of common ingredients. You likely already have Dijon mustard in your pantry, a beloved ingredient for imparting a rich depth of flavour and a subtle hint of spice to various dishes.

Another key ingredient, thyme, is a staple in your dried herb collection. Thyme is versatile and used in numerous dishes across different cuisines. Additionally, it has medicinal properties, is known to alleviate muscle spasms, combat fungal and bacterial infections, and provides anti-inflammatory benefits.

The remaining ingredients—milk, butter, salt, celeriac, and potatoes—can be found in your refrigerator or pantry or easily added to your next fruit and veg shopping list.

Potatoes, naturally fat-free, are a great source of vitamin C and fibre. Celeriac, on the other hand, not only provides additional vitamin C but also offers a healthy dose of vitamin K, essential for heart and bone health, along with antioxidants that help protect your body’s cells from damage.

The thyme and celery mash isn’t just a delight to the taste buds and a powerhouse of nutrition. Potatoes offer a substantial amount of vitamin C and fibre, promoting a robust immune system and aiding digestion. Celeriac, a low-carb alternative to potatoes, brings in an extra boost of vitamin C and a healthy dose of vitamin K, essential for maintaining strong bones and a healthy heart. This root vegetable is also packed with antioxidants that help shield your body’s cells from damage caused by free radicals.

Thyme adds more than just flavour to this dish. Its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties can help reduce inflammation and combat infections, enhancing overall health. The inclusion of Dijon mustard not only provides a delightful spice but also adds antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. With milk offering calcium and high-quality protein and butter supplying essential fat-soluble vitamins, this creamy mash is a nutritious side dish that perfectly balances taste and health benefits. Enjoy this indulgent yet health-packed dish with your favourite main courses and feel good about every bite.

The result is a creamy, nutritious side dish that pairs well with various main courses. The best part? This creamy mash feels indulgent but has hidden health benefits that the entire family can enjoy!

Celeriac, also known as celery root, is a nutritious and tasty root vegetable, an excellent low-carb substitute for potatoes. Belonging to the same family as celery, it shares similar health benefits. Celeriac is round and bulbous, with a brown, knobby outer layer and firm, white inner flesh. When roasted, it boasts a nutty and slightly sweet flavour, perfect as a side dish or an addition to salads.

Celeriac is low in carbs and calories yet high in fibre, vitamins, and potassium. It is also a superb source of antioxidants, making it a valuable addition to a healthy diet.
