4 plump cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed
1 onion, peeled and chopped
Salt, freshly ground black pepper and grated nutmeg
1 tablespoon of dried mixed herbs

1 large or 2 small celeriac, peeled
30 g (1 oz) 2 tablespoons of Dairy free margarine

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F) Gas mark 6

2. First make the sauce. mix all of the ingredients together, cover and chill until needed.

3. Cook the mince for a few minutes in a large pan over a low heat until it is evenly browned. Stir occasionally and do not allow it to stick.

4. Add three quarters of the garlic and the onion and cook for 2 minutes, stirring all the time.

5. Add the seasoning, mixed herbs and tomato puree (paste). mix in the wine and simmer for 3 minutes.

6. Blend the cornflour (cornstarch) with 300 ml (10 fl oz) 1 1/4 cups of cold water in a mug until it is smooth.

7. Stir the mixture into the lamb. Now bring the mince to the boil so that it thickens.

8. Transfer this to a deep heatproof baking dish.

9. Remove any blemishes from the celeriac and chop it into thin and even slices, so it looks like potato slices.

10. Have a saucepan of boiling water ready and blanch the prepared celeriac for 5 minutes. Drain and refresh under cold water.

11. Arrange a layer of celeriac over the mince, dot with margarine, the remaining garlic, salt and pepper.

12. Cover with another layer of celeriac until it is all used up. Sprinkle the top with a little cayenne pepper and dot with more margarine.

13. Bake until the celeriac is soft and cooked through, and the top is golden brown, about 45 minutes.

14. Now reduce the heat to 180°C (350°F) gas 4 and cook for another 40 minutes.

15. Serve hot with a dollop of the sauce on the celeriac. ideal with a green or mixed salad.
