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
- Large knob of butter
- 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.
- Using 2 layers of foil ready to wrap the celeriac
- Oil the skin of the celeriac.
- Add salt, pepper, garlic, mix herbs and butter on top and around of the celeriac
- Wrap in the foil
- Place in oven and slow roast for 2 hours at 200 degrees C or 190 degrees C for a fan assisted oven.
PKU bread sauce
Easy low protein bread sauce
- 2 x 200ml packs of Snopro (low protein milk)
- 1 shallot
- Salt and pepper
- Bread crumbs from protein free bread (I used a slightly stale home made Fate food loaf)
- Peel the shallot and slice in two.
- Put it in a pan with salt and pepper
- Pour 200ml of Snopro into the pan and bring to the boil.
- Simmer for 5 minutes.
- Strain the mixture and put back into pan and bring back to the boil.
- Add bread crumbs while mixing to get desired consistency for bread sauce. If it becomes to stodgy add more Snopro to the pan.
