Go-With-Everything Celery Root Puree

Celery Root Puree
This week in French Fridays With Dorie we made Celery Root Puree.  Let me admit - I wasn't sure about this recipe.  Whenever I would see Celery Root in the store I would ask my self who would want to eat that.  After making this recipe, I would that is who.  I love Celery Root.  It is so delicious.  I love its' a mild celery flavor.  In this recipe celery root was boiled in milk and water with a potato, and a small onion.  All of the veggies were drained and then pureed.  Once the veggies were smooth, butter was added to the veggies.  Season with salt and white pepper and if you want garnish the Celery Root Puree with snipped  fresh chives, pistachio oil, or browned butter.  I served mine with snipped chives.

The family enjoyed this recipe a lot.  They loved the flavor and the texture of the puree.  This recipe is a keeper for the Saucier Family:)

This recipe can be found on page 354 in "Around My French Table."
