I love mash potatoes, but they are no go on a low carb diet.

I have found a substitute

Celeriac, boiled and mashed, with a little butter, cream or grated cheese added, tastes very similar, and is only around 2% carb.

I tried this tonight. Not half bad. :thup: Pretty strong celery flavour, but I only had sour cream to put on it. Next time, I'll probably try bacon and cheddar cheese. :thup:

I love celeriac too! :)

For a mash-y type thing, I mix it half and half with cauliflower. Lightens the flavour a bit and lowers the carbs a bit.

It also makes a great salad a la Julia Child... Celeriac Remoulade (http://www.globalgourmet.com/food/egg/egg0196/clryreml.html)

Don't be put off by the name. It's pretty easy and very tasty!

Yikes they look like a tumor!

Oh well, now worse than daikon!

well, i finally found the celery root and tried the recipe for celery root puree found in Suzanne Somers Fast and Easy. It does have a strong celery flavor, but i love celery so it didn't bother me a bit. I ate mine with gravy form a beef roast I had prepared and mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

I have heard of a califlower mash potato dish but I cant figure out how to search on the recipe section

Hi Wow. Click http://forum.lowcarber.org/images/top_search.gif at the top of the page. Choose your keywords, like "mashed cauliflower" or just "cauliflower" for all cauli recipes. Then select this forum (Salad, Veggies & Side Dishes). :idea:

a romanian friend of mine regularly makes a salad of grated celery root and chopped cold chicken breast mixed with mayo and whatever spices you like in chicken salad. I 've had it and it's really great.

I tried the caul mash, and it was good! I will try celery root sometime, too.

I'm going to try the mashed potatoes with cauliflower this week. On Mother's Day my hubby cooked out for me and I made potato salad with cauliflower...it was FANTASTIC!!! We couldn't believe how good it was. Cauliflower will be a staple in my house. :)

This is probably a stupid question, but I have to ask...

I've seen mock mashed potatoes with cauliflower at Ruby Tuesday's and saw George Stella make them on his show. They *look* good, but I hate cauliflower. Do they taste like cauliflower? Would cauliflower haters like them?

I don't think you get a strong cauliflower taste - I always add some shredded leek as well.

I also like to make a celeriac dauphinoise - same as the potato version but with celeriac - this is really good

Susan, for what it's worth, I loathe cauliflower, but got brave and tried the mock mashed potatoes. Now I may have made it wrong, but I spit the first bite out. DH loved it though. After smelling it cook I was really hesitant to try it too, That probably made it worse as well.

Would anybody have a recipe for "scalloped potatoes" using celeriac??

I have one in my crisper I have to use up!!!
