Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed (about 10 ounces)
    3 small celery roots (celeriac), peeled and cubed (about 6 ounces)
    1 clove garlic, peeled
    1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    1 tablespoon Greek yogurt
    2 tablespoon chives, chopped



Tips

Celery root is also known as celeriac. To some, it is not the prettiest looking taproot. It can have small finger like tubes twisting and turning around itself. Deep peeling with a paring knife is required due to the knobby surface. It's lovely raw or cooked and perfect for an end of meal breath refresher. Peeled celery root will turn brown quickly so always have a lemon on hand to squeeze onto the flesh or cook immediately after cutting.

Directions

Place the veggies in a medium saucepan and cover with water by 2 inches.
Bring to boil, then reduce heat and simmer about 20 minutes, until tender.
Drain the vegetables and pour them back into the pan.
Using a potato masher, mash the veggies while cooking over medium-high heat to ensure your dish is not watery.
After the water has evaporated, which should take about two minutes, remove the veggies from heat, then stir in the butter, yogurt, and chives.

Serve warm.


Serving Size: Makes 2 cups, 1/2 cup per serving.

  • Incredible!

    Celery root is delicous. One of those "hidden" vegetables in stores. No, regular stalk celery isn't the same. Stalk celery has those "strings" ... and not the same taste. I like it just steamed with sprinkle salt and pepper. Tried this recipe and very tasty. Will make for family and friends. - 11/9/12

    Update: I wasn't crazy about this the first time but something about it intrigued me, so I made this recipe again, but with double the amount of garlic, sweet potato and yogurt and NO butter. I like it much better and now it's fat free! - 11/11/12

    Kathy, celery is nothing like celery root, in fact, I used celery root in place of mash potatoes when I was doing Susan Summer's no-carb Thanksgiving. It mashed, white and creamy just like potatoes but w/celery fragrant. Hope that helps. - 11/9/12

  • I made this for Thanksgiving this year (2012) and it was a hit! I omitted the Butter but doubled the Recipe since there were 9 of us, but I still had enough for 4 plates of leftovers. I will be making it again! - 11/23/12

  • Mrs. Tugger - Sweet potatoes are very easy to peel after blanching or cooking and I think you could make that work with this recipe. - 11/14/12
