This is what you do

When all 3 is done, keep them apart and mash them, use a food processor or press through a sieve, one at the time

In a small oblong microsafe bowl, add the pureed leek first, then pour the mashed carrots on top of the leek, and the mashed celeriac on top

Let it cool off in the bowl, and then turn it upside down on a plate
Serve your Vegetable-paté alone, as an appetizer or as a side to fried/grilled meat
Note; All microwaves are different, so always start with the shortest cookingtime and check your dish to see if it’s done before adding more time. If it’s almost done, just add 20 seconds at the time until done. You don’t want to overcook your food
