Default Miss your mash potatoes?

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. Pretty strong celery flavour, but I only had sour cream to put on it. Next time, I'll probably try bacon and cheddar cheese.

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

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

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.

Hi Wow. Click 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).

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'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
