Thinly slice the onions. Peel the celeriac and chop into small cubes. Mince the garlic.
Heat oil in a large saucepan and add the onions. Fry for 5-7 minutes or until softened and golden. Mince the garlic and fry for a minute or two until fragrant, then add chopped tomatoes and a pinch each of salt, pepper and sugar. Stir in the sage.
