celery root puree

now if you have never worked with a celery root they are pretty odd looking.. but very good.. jake and and sam came to dinner and jake says your mashed potatoes taste weird mom, i said they aren't mashed potatoes they are celery root. he then says well then your celery root tastes weird.. ha but he ate it anyway.. it really is good..


(these are what celery root look like when you get them from the store)

prep time: 20 minutes
cooking time: 15-20 minutes
servings:  4


ingredients:

1 celery root ball, peeled with a sharp knife and cut into cubes
1 cup chicken broth (or water)
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 tblsp. butter
3 cloves of roasted garlic
salt and pepper to taste



( a celery root can be hard to peel but you need to get the outter layer off use a sharp knife)
simmer celery root in broth until tender in a heavy saucepan, about 12-15 minutes (its like boiling potatoes for mashed potatoes)


 

drain the celery root, then puree celery root, heavy cream, butter and garlic in the food processor until creamy. (you can add cream cheese now too if you like)  add salt and pepper.. serve immediately..
