Mashed (Celery Root) “Potatoes”

IMG_8920

By itself, celery root is subtle, but its distinct flavor (tastes like a combination of celery and parsley) is something you can never tire of regardless of how it’s cooked. Like when enjoying most vegetables, I usually have celeriac when lightly sautéed with butter and seasoned with salt and pepper. Today, I decided to make a mashed version of it with the addition of some thyme, mustard, and garlic. The verdict? Speaks for itself.

And it glows.

Celeriac: is high in fiber, potassium, magnesium, and vitamin B6, is beneficial for the lymphatic, nervous, and urinary systems, acts as an effective diuretic, enhances digestion, contains a good amount of vitamin C, maintains body functions such as blood flow,  promotes bone health, lowers cholesterol levels, helps with insomnia, and is a good source of folate and vitamin K.
