Celery Root Mash is unbelievably delicious! This is my version of "mashed potatoes" and honestly, I would eat this instead of mashed potatoes any day. It's super yummy, creamy like mashed potatoes and has just the slightest hint of celery.
Celery Root Mash
This makes a wonderful side dish. Make sure to make enough, I always want to eat the whole batch.
Equipment: Medium Saucepan w/ Lid, Food Processor or Hand Mixer
- 4 cups celery root (about 3 medium), peeled, cut into 1" pieces
- 1 1/2 - 2 cups filtered water
- 2-4 tablespoons pasture butter (See Resources)
- 1/2 teaspoon Celtic sea salt or to taste (See Resources)
1. Prep celery root - wash, peel and cut into 1 inch chunks.
2. Add celery root chunks to the saucepan. Add water, just enough to barely cover the celery root. Cover with lid and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until fork tender.
3. Strain water and place celery root into food processor. Add pasture butter and sea salt, pulse until celery root becomes a smooth puree, about 1 minute.
4. Serve hot or refrigerate for later.
Yield: Makes about 2 1/2 cups puree.
Storage: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 3 days.
Serving Suggestions: Serve with Pasture Roasted Chicken, Pot Roast, Grassfed Lamb Chops, Pan-Sauteed Fish, Sauteed or Roasted Vegetables or top with Homemade Gravy. Use as a substitution for any meal with mashed potatoes.
