Parmesan scented celeriac & potato mash, served with gluten free chicken chipolata’s

on 24/03/2011

A tasty parmesan scented celeriac & potato mash!

I love to eat celeriac. It is a typical winter vegetable here in Belgium. It is also an under estimated veggie. I love this vegetable a lot because you can use it in so many ways in your kitchen. What is it? Wikipedia explains it very well.

How to prepare & use? You must always take away the thicker outer peel with a vegetable peeler or with a sharp knife. You can cook it, roast it, eat it in an alternative cole slaw or  in a salad too. It is great in soups with potatoes etc. You can also grate it. You can bake or fry it too.

Prepare celeriac

Step 1: Place the celeriac on a clean work surface. Use a sharp knife to remove the base and top from the celeriac so it sits flat.

Step 2: To peel the celeriac, cut down the side, close to the skin, being careful not to remove too much flesh. If you have a fresh celeriac, you can peel the skin with a vegetable peeler.

Step 3: Chop or slice as desired or grate it. Place the pieces in a bowl of cold water and add some lemon juice or some apple cider vinegar to prevent discoloring.

 Recipe: For 2 persons, with a bit of seconds


500 gr peeled celeriac, cut roughly into little chunks, each about 1 cm x 1 cm, weighted when peeled.

500 gr of peeled potatoes, cut into 2, weighted when peeled

50 gr Parmesan cheese, finely grated

Herbamare salt ( is gluten free )

soy baking margarine/ I use Alpro

Maldon sea salt

freshly grinded white pepper

fresh nutmeg

2 organic gluten – free chicken chipolata’s


1. Boil the celeriac pieces & potatoes apart in hot boiling water until done.

In the cooking water of the potatoes, add some herbamare salt to add some flavour to the potatoes. In the cooking pot with the celeriac, don’t add anything, no salt either. Cook until done & drain well. Keep warm.

2. Now, make the duo mash. First, add some Maldon sea salt flakes, but not too much to the potatoes. Add some grinds of fresly grinded white pepper & add some fresly grated nutmeg, about 1/2 teaspoon. Mash with a masher. Add 2 or 3 knobs of soy baking margarine. Mix well.

3. Now, add the cooked celeriac pieces. Mash this too. Taste! Add some nutmeg &  pepper if you need too. Mash again if it all isn’t quite mashed well.

4. Put the pot with the duo mash on a hot fire & add 1/2 of the Parmesan. Let it melt. Take away from the fire & mix well. Taste!

Than, add the rest of the Parmesan cheese to the puree & let it melt again on the fire. Set aside & taste again. It has to taste fab! You must taste the flavour of the potatoes, the apart flavour of the celeriac & the flavour of the Parmesan cheese. You can use less Parmesan cheese if necessary because you have different types of Parmesan cheese & some can be milder or stronger. So, always taste after added 25 grams. Maybe 25 grams is enough because you will have to taste the 3 different elements of flavours!

Then, if needed add some S or P or nutmeg to the mash. Reheat themash, if necessary a bit on a low fire.

5. In the meantime, you have fried the organic chicken chipolata’s in a frying pan in soy baking margarine until ready & cooked through.

Serve immediately & enjoy!

  14. Simone says:

    I love celeriac too! It’s indeed an underrrated vegetable and well it does look incredibly ugly but tastes so good!!

  15. I have never even heard of celeriac, lol!
    So I call myself a food writer, oh well….

    Have a great weekend Sophie!

  16. Barbara says:

    Beautiful dish, Sophie.
    I saw Ina Garten make a celeriac root slaw yesterday and copied the recipe. (Such an ugly veggie!)

  17. Beautiful photos Sophie, and thank you for the lesson – I’ve never cooked celeriac before!

  18. Margot says:

    What a good idea. I love celeriac but my boys hate it, especially when I make it raw in salad. I must try to smuggle it in your mash next time 😉

  19. Oh yeah, I am crazy about celeriac, it smells amazing when you roast it, and yummmmm, when you puree, so sweet and lovely. Great piccys! 🙂

  20. I love celeriac too … Mashed with potatoes, it’s a real treat …
    Have a nice day

  21. lisamichele says:

    My mouth is watering..I would love to try the parmesan scented celeriac-potato mash. Looks amazing!!

  22. jo says:

    Sophie, just the name of this recipe makes it sound so elegant. Honestly I have never tried celeriac but does remind me of a similar root vegetable found here locally.

  23. Cheryl says:

    Wow Sophie i can say I have never eaten Celeriac, I will look for it at the Farmers Market!

  24. Nic says:

    I admit I’m not massively keen on celeriac, but the mash has the other ingredients in it that I like, so it’s probably very good!

  25. Carolyn Jung says:

    Thanks for the reminder about the wonders of celeriac. I often just pass by it in the produce stand, even though I love it in restaurant preparations, both raw and cooked. The next time I’m at the store, I am loading up on it, thanks to you.

  26. elra says:

    I love celeriac, and been making salad a lot from this fragrant roots lately. Yours recipe sounds really tempting Sophie!

  27. Velva says:

    Hi Sophie, the last two years, I have been enjoying growing celeriac. It does beautifully in a mild north Florida winter. You
    are right, the celeriac is an under appreciated veggie/herb.

    Awesome meal.


  28. What an awesome combination! That changes from boring ol’ mashed potatoes =)

  29. FOODESSA says:

    Celeriac is part of my favourite root veggie selections. I’ve prepared it in so many ways. The roasted way with some caramelized onion works deliciously just as your mashed version with parmesan…yum ;o)

    Have a great week Sophie…and flavourful wishes,

  30. lizeckel says:

    this looks awesome! i’ve never cooked with celeriac before, maybe i should pick one up this weekend and try it out.

  31. Bean says:

    I’ve seen celeriac at the store and seen it called for in some recipes, but I’ve never known what to do with it. Thanks for sharing your knowledge! What does it taste like?

  32. grace says:

    the only thing i know about celeriac is that it’s hideous in its natural form but transforms into something magically delicious. nice dish!

  33. Gail says:

    Celeriac – an ugly but wonderful vegetable. Your dish sounds delicious.

Furthermore, a myth regarding the banking companies intentions when talking about foreclosures is that the lender will not getreceive my repayments. There is a certain amount of time that this bank can take payments here and there. If you are far too deep within the hole, they are going to commonly demand that you pay that payment fully. However, that doesn’t mean that they will have any sort of payments at all. If you and the financial institution can manage to work a little something out, the particular foreclosure practice may stop. However, in case you continue to neglect payments under the new approach, the home foreclosure process can just pick up exactly where it was left off.
