Celery Root Mash - Foodie Friends Friday with Farm Girls Glitz and Glam

I (would like to) think I am a fairly low-maintenance girl.  I'm a wash-and-go hair kind of girl and normally only ever manage to slap on some BB cream and a little mascara before I leave the house.  But the one thing I love?  Any body lotion or bath gel or scrub that smells like vanilla.  I use and abuse my legs every day bike commuting so I like to pamper them a little to show off what I've worked hard for!  This week Foodie Friends Friday is being sponsored by Farm Girls Glitz and Glam, who are giving away Lavender Scrub to the top votes!  (Which means you should probably come back to vote on Sunday if you love a good scrub...)

Today's recipe is a super fast substitute for plain old mashed potatoes.  Peel and chunk a celery root and a couple of potatoes, boil it up, and mash.  The only thing that takes a little time is cleaning up the root, be sure to have a very sharp knife to avoid any slippage while handling that hunk of root.  After I mashed it up, I already had the oven going so I put it in a little souffle cup, sprinkled with a little parmesan cheese, and baked for a few minutes to brown the top.

Easy peasy, just like linking up to our party!

Celery Root Mash
1 celery root
2 yukon gold potatoes
1 tablespoon roasted garlic
1/4 cup sour cream
splash or two of cream
salt and pepper to taste
Optional - parmesan to sprinkle

Begin by cleaning up the root.  With a very sharp knife, carefully trim off the outer layer of the root and then chunk up the celery root into even pieces.  Chunk up the potatoes into slightly larger chunks, as they cook faster than the root.

Plop into a saucepan filled with cold water and bring to a boil.  Cook until you can pierce easily with a fork.  Drain and mash, adding the roasted garlic, sour cream, and cream as needed.  Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Optional: Preheat the oven to 350 F.  Place the mash in an oven safe ceramic souffle cup, sprinkle the top with parmesan cheese, and bake for about 10 minutes or until the top has browned.
