  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 celeriac peeled and cut into 1-1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 lbs sweet potatoes peeled and chopped
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 golden delicious apple peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg

Method

In large pot of boiling salted water, cover and cook celeriac for 5 minutes.

Add sweet potatoes; cook, covered, until vegetables are tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain, reserving 1 cup (250 mL) of the liquid; return to low heat for 1 minute to dry vegetables.

Meanwhile, in small skillet, melt 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the butter over medium heat. Stir in apple and nutmeg; cook, stirring often, until softened, 8 minutes.

In batches in food processor, purée potato mixture and apples until smooth; transfer to bowl. Stir in reserved cooking liquid and remaining butter. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 2 days; reheat to serve.)
