Celery Root Puree

Who would have thought that such an apparently unattractive vegetable with pretty spicy leafs could be transformed to a gorgeous side dish? I’ve made mushes with pumpkin, peas, parsnip, swede, but celery root puree has pleasantly surprised me with its gentle aroma and a very delicate taste.  If to all these qualities we will add that it contains only 7 g of net carbs per serving, I’d say it’s definitely better than potatoes!
