1 small celeriac

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 cup Vermont Creamery Crème Fraîche

salt and pepper

fresh thyme

  1. Cut the cauliflower into florets and peel and dice the celeriac into 1⁄2” cubes.
  2. Place in a large pot and cover with water.
  3. Boil the vegetables until soft but not mushy, about 10 minutes.
  4. Drain the water and use an immersion blender to process the vegetables until nearly smooth or the consistency you like for your favorite mash.
  5. Add the oil and 1⁄2 of the Crème Fraîche
  6. Mix well and add Crème Fraîche until you have a smooth mash.
  7. Season with salt and pepper.
