Celery Root Puree – Come for the Flavor, Stay for the Low Carbs

As promised, here’s the celery root purée seen underneath
our recently posted crispy pork belly video. To be honest, I’m not a huge root
vegetable guy, but celeriac, as it’s called in certain parts, is something I really enjoy. Plus, I’m a sucker for ugly produce.

I joked in the video that celery root tastes like celery, if
celery actually tasted good, and for the most part this is true. The flavor is
quite mild and pleasant, and the texture is somewhat similar to mashed
potatoes. Considering this stuff is only
about 5% starch, somewhat similar it’s pretty good.

This simple puree is a very versatile side dish, but the
tasty root will also work sliced thin and layered in a gratin, either with or
without the aforementioned potatoes. I hope you give this great fall and winter
vegetable a try soon. Enjoy!

Ingredients for 6 portions:

1 large celery root, about 1 pound

1 lemon

salt to taste

2 tbsp butter

1/3 cup cream or milk, or as needed to adjust texture

cayenne to taste
