WHB #118: Mustard chicken with celeriac & carrot mash

The 118th edition of Weekend Herb Blogging is hosted by Claudia from Fool for Food.
This week I write about the healty benefits of mashed root vegetables. They make a great alternative to potato mash. Celeriac is rich in vitamin C and folate, which is good for the heart. Carrots are a super source of beta carotene, which the body converts to vitamin A. They’re also high in phosphorus and silicon, which are important bone building nutrients. The mashed celeriac and carrots are accompanied with beans and mustard chicken.

    Two recipes in one!
    I love celeriac, but mostly use it soups. My main complaint about it is that it is hard to peel. Any tips on that department?
    The chicken preparation sounds fantastic. I love mustard, and I am sure to try it.
