Celeriac puree & cheese nest | Vegan-Gluten free | New Year
Uppdaterat: 9 mars 2021
Hello my lovelies! I wanted to start of this week with a starter and isn't that just fitting to the theme we are currently having with a New Year just around the corner. On the topic of New Year we are making three dishes a starter, a main and a dessert and today we are making a cheese nest as a symbol of a new start of the year!
Serves 4-6 people.
What you need:
5 dl (2 cups) imat oatly
500g diced celeriac
25g vegan butter
1/2 dl (0,2 cup) water in which the celeriac was cooked in
Salt and pepper to taste
What you need for the mushrooms:
4-6 oyster mushrooms
Butter for frying
A pinch of salt
A pinch of pepper
What you need for cheese nest:
Grated vegan cheese that is able to melt
About 3-4 tbsp per bowl
Begin with bringing the cream to a boil on low heat until you are left with half the amount as cream do tend to boil over I recommend using a larger pot. Once you have half left set it aside.
While the cream is boiling we can carry on with rinsing off the celeriac and dice it then pop them into a pot of boiling water on medium high heat. Cook them until they are soft and then take off the heat. Make sure to set aside 1/2 dl (0,2 cup) of the water as we need that for adjustments.
Once the celeriac have cooled enough add them to a blender together with the butter and cream until it becomes smooth and then sift the puree into a bowl and adjust the consistency with the celeriac water to your preference. Add salt and pepper to taste and set aside for now.
Bring a pan up to medium high heat and add around 3-4 tbsp of cheese and create a thin circle out of it. Once the cheese have melted and turned golden brown flip it over and fry it for a little bit more.
Now to get the shape we want we will turn a glass upside down and use the bottom to help the cheese drape it as to create a little nest.
For the topping we are going to fry off some mushrooms on medium high heat in some butter and sprinkle some salt and pepper.
Now for serving place the cheese nest onto a small plate and then pipe the celeriac puree into the bowl and top it off with the mushrooms.
