Fagan Eats Paleo Recipe: Celery Root Puree



Paleo Celery Root Puree

If you look at my posts lately, you'll see that I'm on a big puree kick.  I just love how easy they are to make and how comforting they are to eat!  I am a big lover of mashed potatoes and I'm always in search of a good substitute.  Celery root is great in that regard. 


Celery root has a great earthy, unique flavoring with an essence of the taste of traditional celery.  In a non-Paleo celery root recipe, it is recommended to simmer in milk, which takes away some of the bite or bitterness of the celery root.  In this recipe, I simmer in coconut milk and chicken broth, which enhances the flavor and the creaminess when it's pureed.  You can always add garlic and herbs to give it an additional flavor/freshness boost.  Hope you all enjoy!
