Mashed Celeriac

ACK!!!  I am so excited to share this recipe with you guys!  I have found a new love, and it’s celeriac (celery root).  As you can see, this delicious root vegetable may look a little rough around the edges (literally), but oh my gosh, it is DELICIOUS, and SO SO good for you!!!

This AH-mazing lil root veggie is packed with nutrients, and makes for an excellent diuretic for those looking to get rid of a little excess bloat. Furthermore, it’s great for the immune system, helps prevent kidney stones, is full of antioxidants, and helps with healthy bones.

You can probably see why I am so excited to share this SUPER easy recipe with you!  I cook this celeriac root up and mash it like mashed potatoes, and it turns into an awesome side dish that has a sweet and salty taste to it, and makes me want to eat it all day long.  Let’s get to it!

Ingredients: Makes 1 serving

  • 1 small to medium sized celery root
  • olive oil
  • garlic powder
  • sea salt
  • pepper


1.) First, you want to use a knife to chop off the top and bottom of the root, then use your knife to peel off the rough edges of the root (basically like peeling a potato, but you have to use a knife because these are so rough around the edges).  Next, chop the celeriac into small chunks.  Place in a medium sized sauce pan and cover with water.  bring to a boil over high heat and cook until the celeriac is quite tender.  About 15-20 minutes.  Remove from heat and drain.

2.) Place the cooked celeriac back in the pan.  Drizzle with olive oil.  Sprinkle with garlic powder, sea salt, and pepper.  Use a masher to mash the celeriac to desired consistency.

3.) Transfer to a bowl, and garnish with some of the leaves from the root, if desired.

You are going to LOVE this stuff!  SO yummy!  Enjoy! 🙂
