  • Servings: 6


1 pound Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes

1 pound celery root, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes

1/2 cup whipping cream (or more to taste)

1/4 cup butter

Salt and freshly ground pepper

6 chives, finely diced


Place potatoes and celery root in a large, heavy saucepan. Fill it with water until the vegetables are covered by a half inch of water. Bring to a boil and reduce temperature to maintain a slow boil for about 15 to 20 minutes or until vegetables are soft enough to yield to a fork.

Drain vegetables and place through a ricer over the empty saucepan (or mash with a potato masher in the pan). Place on low heat and stir in cream, butter and chives. Add salt and pepper to taste. Heat through and whip the mixture with a spoon or electric mixer to get it fluffy.
