I was so inquisitive about this root vegetable before I really get to know about it. After reading several articles and listening to several people I understood how good this root vegetable for the man kind. It has so many health benefits. I really love this vegetable. I use it in several dishes on my way. This celeriac mash tastes really beautiful.
Celeriac is high in dietary fibre and protein as well as many vitamins and minerals. Celeriac is good for joint health, kidney cleanse, and also for weight loss. Other than that good in bone and heart health.
This recipe will serve 6-8 People
I used 1 celeriac weighs about 600g with 5 medium potatoes. When you buy celeriac try to buy one with less holes and round in shape.Celeriac root features rough, knobby outer surface covered with tiny rootlets. Inside, its smooth white flesh has celery-like flavour.
First cut the celeriac in half. Then put the flat side down and remove the outer skin.
Cut the celeriac in to cubes and cut the potatoes too and add directly to the steamer. If not it will go brown.
Once cooked (It takes only 20 minutes) put in to a bowl and add salt and pepper.
Add some butter and cream. (Just a little bit) and mash well.
Serve as a side or as part of your main meal.
