Mashed Buttermilk Potatoes and Celery Root

Bet no one will guess the secret ingredient - celery root. These creamy mashed potatoes go great with roast chicken, beef or pork.

Preparation Time: 10 Minutes
Cooking Time: 15 Minutes
Servings: 4


  • 2 lb (1 kg) Ontario Potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes (5 or 6 potatoes)
  • Half small Ontario Celery Root, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 cloves Ontario Garlic
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) butter
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup (125 to 175 mL) buttermilk

In large saucepan, combine potatoes, celery root and garlic. Fill pan with just enough salted water to cover vegetables. Bring to boil over high heat; reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, until vegetables are very tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain well.
Return vegetables and garlic to saucepan; set over low heat. Mash with butter and salt. Add 1/2 cup (125 mL) buttermilk; mash until as smooth as desired. For creamier potatoes, add remaining buttermilk.
