  • 1 1/4 pounds celery roots, peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 pound cauliflower florets
  • 1/2 pound russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg


1. Combine celery roots, cauliflower, potatoes, lemon juice and bay leaves in a large saucepan; add cool water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until vegetables are very tender, 20 to 22 minutes. Drain well; let stand for 3 minutes. Shake to remove any excess moisture. Discard bay leaves.

2. Process celery root mixture in a food processor just until smooth, about 1 minute. Stir in butter, salt, white pepper and nutmeg.
