MASHED CELERIAC

Ingredients: Makes 1 serving

  • 1 small to medium sized celery root
  • olive oil
  • garlic powder
  • sea salt
  • pepper

Directions

1.) First, you want to use a knife to chop off the top and bottom of the root, then use your knife to peel off the rough edges of the root (basically like peeling a potato, but you have to use a knife because these are so rough around the edges).  Next, chop the celeriac into small chunks.  Place in a medium sized sauce pan and cover with water.  bring to a boil over high heat and cook until the celeriac is quite tender.  About 15-20 minutes.  Remove from heat and drain.

2.) Place the cooked celeriac back in the pan.  Drizzle with olive oil.  Sprinkle with garlic powder, sea salt, and pepper.  Use a masher to mash the celeriac to desired consistency.
