Potato Mash Substitutes: Sage & Celeriac Mash

Celeriac Sage Mash

Celeriac is more than likely one of those vegetables you walk past at your local fruit and veg market without even considering. Although it appears a little ugly on the exterior, like all good books, you should never judge a vegetable buy it’s cover. Celeriac is rich in vitamins A, C, K and E, carotene, micro elements and other nutrients that are known to boost the health of our digestive system, reduce inflammation and improve liver function. It makes yet another wonderful substitution for potato mash during the winter months.

Potato Mash Substitutes: Cauliflower Mash

Cauliflower Mash makes a regular appearance in our household. I serve it as a side on a number of occasions, in particular alongside my Moroccan Lamb Stew throughout the winter months.

Make Your Own Coconut Milk

Coconut Milk is a great alternative to rice or almond milk and a wonderful way to add nourishing, healthy fats to your diet. Unfortunately canned varieties of coconut milk are lined with BPA and whilst cartoned varieties are becoming increasingly available, they are quite expensive, can contain additives and sweeteners and in my opinion, just don’t taste the same. Fortunately, it is incredibly simple and extremely inexpensive to make your own organic coconut milk at home. All you need to know about how this simple DIY task is revealed right here.
