Mashed Potatoes with Celeriac

    45 minutes

    I like to add celeriac to mashed gives a good flavour to them. Works fine with either milk or cream.

    15 people made this

    Serves: 10 

    • 1 large celeriac root, peeled and cut into 2cm pieces
    • 3 large potatoes, peeled and cut into 2cm pieces
    • 1/3 cream or milk
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • salt and pepper to taste

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Place the celeriac cubes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 12 minutes. Add the potatoes, and continue boiling until the vegetables are very tender, about 15 minutes more. Drain well and allow to steam dry for a minute or two.
    2. Return the vegetables to the pot and pour in the cream and butter. Add salt and pepper. Mash with a potato masher until almost smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings if you wish.

    I used to make Celery Root "Mashed Potatoes" myself, until my local Grocery Stores quit carrying Celery Root. I Miss it so much. It is creamier & tastier than Mashed Potatoes. I never tried it like this with 1/2 Potatoes. I used strictly Celery Root with white Pepper, salt, cream & Butter. I put it in my blender & My Family liked it better than Mashed is a little sweeter flavor than Potato.....a creamy, delicious taste. Does NOT taste like Celery!  -  22 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The celeriac added a delicious, subtle celery flavor to the mashed potatoes. I used twice as many potatoes (6), less butter (2 T), and skim milk. Turned out delicious, but I would say it probably serves more like 4 than 12.  -  08 Dec 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was great! A tip: use rice milk instead of cream (you'll never know the difference) and heat it before adding it in. It will combine better and won't drop the temperature of the potatoes!  -  20 Feb 2014  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
