Instructions Checklist
  • 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 and allow to steam dry for a minute or two.

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 Potatoes.....it is a little sweeter flavor than Potato.....a creamy delicious taste. Does NOT taste like Celery! Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

I did my own take on this "Celeriac Mash," and loved it. I added a clove of garlic to boil with the celeriac and potatoes. I also added some chopped fresh parsley the last 3 minutes of cooking. It turned out awesome and I have a new favorite way to prepare celeriac. Thank you kboraas for sharing your recipe. Read More

Celeriac is such a great addition to mashed potatoes! It gives a subtle hint of flavor without changing the texture too much. I like to use red skin potatoes unpeeled. The small bits of color make this an attractive addition to the table. I also mashed this with plain low fat yogurt to keep it figure friendly. Thanks! Read More

I had never eaten celeriac before but enjoyed this variation on mashed potatoes. The celeriac adds a mild celery flavor almost as if the potatoes had been boiled in celery water. The consistency was similar to mashed potatoes and I suspect that you could use celeriac in a one-to-one ratio with potatoes in any good mashed potatoes recipe. Read More

Only change I made was I used 6 potatoes and used half and half (and a bit more than called for due to the extra potatoes)... We loved it so much that I've made it two days in a row! Thanks for the share! Read More
