Herbed Celeriac Mash


Prep time:                      10 minutes

Cooking time:              20 minutes

Yields:                               2 people



1 Celeriac, (softball size) peeled and chopped
2 broth cubes (chicken or vegetable)
1 medium onion, diced
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 cloves garlic, diced
1 tbsp fresh thyme
grated peel of 1/2 lemon



Fill a large sauce pan 1/2 way with water, place in diced celeriac and boil for 15-20 minutes or until very tender. Meanwhile in a saute pan, saute onions for 3 minutes with olive oil over medium low heat. Add the garlic and cook 3 more minutes. When the celeriac is tender drain water, add broth cubes, and mash or whip with a blender until smooth. Add the onion garlic saute, thyme and lemon peel. Place in a bowl and garnish with a sprig of thyme and lemon peel twist. 

This warm comforting dish can be used as a main dish, as a base under green beans or roasted veggies. To bring out even more nuttiness roast the garlic for 20 minutes in the oven and add to the mash. 


To peel the celeriac a paring knife is best as the knobs of the root make it difficult for a vegetable peeler.
