Potato and celeriac mash

Vegan, Gluten free
Potato & Celeriac mash

It is ever so simple to make and is probably a good way to introduce kids to odd vegetables - they don't come much stranger than this!
If you like the taste of celery, you'll love this; it's celery flavoured mashed potato.


1 whole celeriac, about 1 kg
about 800g potatoes
2 tablespoons butter (alternatively use vegan butter)
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Peel the celeriac by roughly slicing off the skin. Wash the 'peeled' celeriac - you will probably get about 800g of celeriac from a 1 kg celeriac. Weigh out an equivalent amount of peeled potatoes, the amount does not have to be accurate - 50/50 ish.
Cut the potatoes into quarters and the celeriac into slightly smaller chunks into small chunks so they cook quickly and evenly. Add to a large pan of boiling salted water, return to the boil and cook for 20 minutes.
Drain and leave in the pan to steam for few minutes. Mash with a potato ricer or a potato masher. Add a tablespoons of butter, a splash olive oil. Season and serve.
