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.
Always try to use the potatoes with out leaving longer. Potatoes always go dark soon. Then the colours will not be nice.
Squeezing the extra liquid is not that easy. But do as much as you can, or dry on a paper towel.
When you wash the green part of the leek make sure to seperate the leaves first and then wash one by one to remove the mud or dust on it. leeks easily collect mud.
I always like extra taste. You can always reduce or omit stock cubes. I used the vegetable stock cubes.
As I always all the meals should be very simple but tasty. You can serve this as a nice side dish or even part of a roast. All you want is some simple ingredients that you use in your day today life.
Make sure to preheat the oven to 200c – 250c to get best results.
