This is a really easy celeriac dish that comes together in about 40 minutes with only about 10 minutes of hands on time, 30 minutes is cooking. You only need a few ingredients and if you are new to cooking with celeriac this will give you an idea of the flavor and texture of the vegetable.
I followed this recipe exactly.
The rice in this dish gives it a firmer texture than a puree using only celeriac but lets the celeriac flavor shine on it’s own. The milk makes it luxurious without being heavy like mashed potatoes made with cream and butter.
I used two celeriac. Here is how to prepare them if you need help with that. You’ll need;
- 3/4 pound celeriac (celery root) peeled and cut into chunks
- 1 quart milk
- Salt and pepper
- 1/2 cup rice
- 2 tablespoons heavy cream
Put everything but the cream into a pan and simmer for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes (I let mine stand off the burner for another 15 minutes so it wasn’t so hot transferring it). Strain out the rice and celeriac (save the yummy flavored milk for soup or making mashed potatoes) and put the solids and the cream in a food processor and let it spin for a full 3 minutes.
You can serve this with any roasted meat. It’s really good with a mix of roasted vegetables.
I hope you try this and enjoy it.
