Celery Root Mash (paleo)

Servings: 6
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes


  • one 2 pound celery root
  • 1/2 cup of 100% coconut milk, (the thick kind)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • pepper to taste
  • 3/4 tsp ground mustard seed
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp lemon juice


  • Heat a big pot of water over high heat.
  • Peel the celery root by cutting off the outer layer of it with a knife.
  • Then dice the celery root into small-medium sized pieces.
  • Once the water is boiling, place the diced celery root into the pot.
  • Let it cook in the boiling water for 25 minutes.
  • Drain the celery root and put it into an empty pot.
  • Add the coconut milk to the pot.
  • Using a masher, mash the celery root well, making sure to mix it with the coconut milk.
  • Add the salt, pepper, ground mustard seed, garlic powder, and lemon juice to the mashed celery root.
  • Note: I like a lot of mustard flavor in my celery root, so if you are not sure, maybe start with 1/4 tsp of mustard seed and work up to 3/4 to see how you like the flavor.
  • Chill or eat warm. I prefer it cold.
