CSA: Celeriac Mash

We did not eat the cat!

We did not eat the cat!

Last night marked the beginning of week two for our CSA “Winter Food Basket”. Every two weeks we get a basket full of assorted winter/fall veggies from many different local farms. As we began the second week, we had mostly root vegetables and squash left as greens and other veggies obviously don’t last as long.

So, last night was a fairly quick and easy dinner made (mostly) out of our CSA items. We roasted up some delicata squash rings (although, these delicata are different than ones we’ve had in the past. more stringy like spaghetti squash) and a Celeriac and Potato Mash. We were originally thinking celeriac soup, but were more in the mood for a quick meal. So, Lindsay whipped this up while I did some dishes.

In addition to the veggies, we had some “light life ginger teriyaki tempehtations”. I found them to be quite dull. The flavor was weak and the tempeh was dried out and definitely of a lower grade than we are used to.

Below, is the recipe for the mash:

Celeriac Potato Mash

2 medium sized celeriac (celery root), peeled and diced
2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
¼ cup sour supreme
¼ cup nondairy milk
2 tablespoons vegan margarine
2 heading tablespoons nutritional yeast
Salt and Pepper to taste

1.Boil the potatoes and celeriac until fork tender.
2.Drain the potatoes and celeriac and add back to the pot.
3.Mash in the sour supreme, nondairy milk, margarine and nutritional yeast. Mash together- I like to keep it a little more chunky but if you like it whipped you’d like.
4.Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  1. Your celeriac mash looks good. My favorite way to eat celariac is roasted with a touch of olive oil and tamari. What a great tasting vegetable!

  2. Yum… I wish I still had some delicata squash left from my CSA baskets. I think they’re my favorite squash…they taste so sweet!

  3. that’s so cool your csa has a winter veggie basket. i love that idea! i don’t think i’ve ever had celeriac before. i see it all the time in the stores and our csa offers them in the spring-time. i’m gonna have to grab one & try your mash – it sounds great! hooooooray for delicata squash, too – it’s my favorite of the winter squashes (although i’ve recently discovered kobuchas and they’re also pretty darn delicious!).

  4. With a little tweaking, this looks like a surefire Gena recipe!

      it was delicious but definitely a treat for us. If i was to make it again it would be on the healthier side for us….I’d love to hear about any tweaking you do!
