Celeriac or celery knob, is a variety of celery cultivated for its root. This edible bulb is delicious when steamed and pureed, similar to how you prepare mashed potatoes. Celeriac is creamier and more mild than celery, with an herbaceous taste. I enjoy this puree because it is light in calories and big on flavor.
Celeriac puree is simple to prepare and is delicious along side any of your favorite proteins, especially pan seared chicken, beef or fish. It makes a great substitute for mashed potatoes or cauliflower, give it a try.
