Mashed Potatoes With Celery Root

Mashed Potatoes With Celery Root created by Bergy

I first had these potatoes at a restaurant and they "knocked my socks off." Celeriac (or celery root) is a ugly root, that when baked up becomes quite creamy. The flavor is similar to celery stalk with a sweet undercurrent. This version is from Andrew Schloss's, author of "Dinner's Ready" clipped from the Washington Post 1996.

ingredients

directions

  • Place the potatoes and celery root in a large heavy saucepan.
  • (I start the celery root first, since I find it takes longer to cook. It must be soft to mash up creamy).
  • Cover with water and season liberally with salt and pepper.
  • Cover and cook over medium-high heat until water boils.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and continue to boil until the vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.
  • Drain, and mash the vegetables with a potato masher or a large fork.
  • Mix in cream.
  • Adjust seasoning with additional salt and pepper.

    It was good! It tasted exactly like I thought it would taste. I added just a touch of carmelized onion.

    Fabulous take on potatoes! DH, who can typically sniff out celery in *anything* loved these. I served them for a dinner party alongside roasted game hens and several people commented that 'the mashed poatoes had a certain flair!'. I ended up using more like a 3-to-1 ratio of potatoes to celeric, only b/c I was not sure how they would go over for a large crowd. I also think white pepper goes very well mixed in here over regular. Finally, while I don't typically use a potato ricer, to get the richness of these mashed potatoes, I would highly suggest using one.

    I loved this recipe as well. The mashed potatoes tasted so smooth and had a sweet taste to them. They're a big hit in my family and honestly, I don't think I'll ever eat mashed potatoes without them again. Delicious.

    My family loved this! I made it with red potatoes (skin on) butter and sour cream. I can't wait to make this again!
