Christmas Dinner Idea

I wanted to try out an idea for Christmas dinner to see if it would work. I thought that a roasted Celeriac with bread sauce might be a nice alternative to turkey that my little pkuer could have. It worked out really well and my wife and I agreed that it was actually a nice alternative to meat for any roast dinner (My wife, Keir and I liked it however it wasn’t a hit with my 6 year old daughter). Visually I thought it looked really good and it sliced easily and looked the part. Below please find my recipe for the Celeriac and bread sauce. I would love to hear how you got on with it and if you have any questions, tips or improvements I would love to hear those too. (Keir’s Dad).

Easy PKU friendly roast dinner main


  • Salt and pepper
  • Mixed herbs
  • garlic – I used a teaspoon of very lazy chopped garlic, however next time I would grab a few cloves of garlic which I would chuck in
  • Oil
  • Large knob of butter


  1. Clean the celeriac really well – I removed some of the roots to make sure I could get all the soil out and gave it a good scrub with a brush.
  2. Using 2 layers of foil ready to wrap the celeriac
  3. Oil the skin of the celeriac.
  4. Add salt, pepper, garlic, mix herbs and butter on top and around of the celeriac
  5. Wrap in the foil
  6. Place in oven and slow roast for 2 hours at 200 degrees C or 190 degrees C for a fan assisted oven.
