A great alternative to mashed potatoes, this recipe is from our Mediterranean Date Night Class.
2 lbs celery root, peeled
2 lbs Yukon gold potatoes, peeled
2 cups whole milk
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
2 tsp kosher salt
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
Cut the celery root into small chunks and the potatoes into medium chunks. Cook them in a pot of boiling salted water until each is very tender (15-25 minutes). Drain.
Meanwhile, heat the milk and butter in a small pot until scalded.
Puree the celery root and potatoes in a mixer, or with a ricer* or an immersion blender*. Add the hot milk, salt and pepper to make a firm, but creamy consistency. Serve warm, sprinkled with chopped parsley if desired.
