This has become our favorite side dish to go with soups and main dishes. Doesn’t need much salt. Celery root is an awesome discovery for flavor – these are the best mashed potatoes I’ve ever tasted.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 ½ pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 large celery root, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled
  • ½ cup almond milk, divided
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh chives
  • ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
