celery root mashed potatoes w/ seasonal garlic scapes

18 Jun

i have to say, these were pretty amazing!!!! i wanted to try two things with this dish – both the celery root and the garlic scapes.  i had been told by a few people that celery root goes well in mashed potoatoes.  and i love to experiment with mashed potatoes – definitely one of my favourite vegetarian staples!  so, i did 🙂

simple stuff here – as per usual :

– about a dozen or so creamer potatoes {i used both red and gold for mine}

– celery root {about the size of your fist, if you can find one}

– 2-3 garlic scapes {chopped, bulbs and greens included}

aren’t they pretty?!

begin by cutting your celery root.  you want to trim the ends off until the white flesh is exposed :

kind of like this.  then rinse…

scrub your potatoes well.  i like to keep the skin on for my mashed potato dishes – there are lots of vitamins and nutrients in the skin! chop up your celery root as well.  i cooked mine together – in a large pan, just bring to a boil until tender.

meanwhile, heat about 2 tablespoons butter or oil in a medium-heat skillet and toss in your garlic scapes. saute until they begin to brown.

once potatoes are cooked, remove from heat and drain.  return to pan and add in your cream of choice, S&P, a little butter, and toss in your sauteed garlic scapes.  mash together until your desired consistency – top with chopped garlic scape greens…

savour and enjoy!
