beachgreens bounty and celery root, garlic mashed potatoes

we received our beachgreens bounty yesterday. beachgreens is a family run company that provides farm fresh, organic and sustainable veggies and fruits right to your door. the bounty is always amazing and delicious and believe me nothing ever goes to waste!

this week came home from a day of swimming and found our crate all ready for us. the crate included: a bag of greens, celery root, apples. grapes, blood red and almost purple juicy tomatoes, potatoes, squash, corn, green beans, cucumbers, onion and avocado and nectarine.

for dinner i made trader joe's hofbrau brats sausages, grilled. roasted veggies and celery root and garlic mashed potatoes. celery root being our featured beach greens item. littlefoodie ate it up and it was a nice little, east meal and definitely made more of plain ol mashed potatoes.


1 celery root- slice off top. with sharp knife, trim off roots and outside. its kind of like a hair, rooty turnip. dice up.
bunch of potatoes, peeled and diced into chunks.
4 garlic cloves, peeled and whole
salt and pepper
olive oil

gently boil celery root , garlic and potatoes until tender. roughly 20 min.
throw into bowl and mash with potato masher. add a few generous glugs of olive oil. 4-5-6 tbl unsalted butter... really, its to taste.
about 1/4 cup or more, depending on how you like it of warm milk. mash some more to how you like it. we prefer it just a little chunky.
season with salt and pepper. eat up.
