It may be likely that you have never actually had celery root, also called celeriac, but for any one eating low carb or paleo, it's a great little veggie to get to know. It comes from the same family as celery and has a similar, but more mild flavor. It's terrific mashed, roasted, or sauteed and a great substitute for potatoes in most dishes. Most often I use it in this mash when I get sick of cauliflower and want to mix things up. If you can't find it in your local store, you could also use turnip or rutabaga for this recipe.
