Strawberries 'n' (Celeriac) Cream

Overenthusiastically anticipating summer with a premature quintessential British classic: Strawberries 'n' Cream! One of my favourite things to do with the children in the summer is strawberry picking (and their unabashed eating more than they pick). This is no ordinary cream though (evil villain laugh) - but hides a plethora of antioxidants, fibre, minerals and vitamin K from the celeriac.

We are at the end of celeriac season here so, as we usher in the summer fruits (prematurely), we wave a fond farewell to our winter friends who have provided such comfort in the colder seasons.

My argument that white chocolate should not rationally be labelled chocolate given the lack of cocao content falls on deaf ears.

A one-pan quickie, ideal for midweek family suppers. Serve on top of a heap of steaming cauli-rice (or whatever riced vegetable is to hand - in my case here it is riced celeriac with ginger and coriander) or some plain white riced if preferred. Add some simple greens alongside and dinner is served.
