Ingredients To Make Low-Carb Mashed “Potatoes”

  • Celery root – I used one celery root, cubed
  • Cauliflower – I used a whole head of cauliflower, cubed
  • Garlic – I roasted two whole heads in olive oil
  • Cashews – I prefer to use raw cashews but if you can only find roasted, that’s fine too.
  • Salt – I prefer to cook with sea salt.
  • Chives – Fresh chives really add a nice flavor, don’t use dried.
  • Butter – Look for grass-fed butter or ghee.

Equipment Needed To Make Mashed “Potatoes”

  • measuring cups and spoons
  • food processor or blender

How To Make Mashed “Potatoes” Alternative

  1. Place the cashews in a bowl and cover them with boiling water while you prepare the rest of the recipe.
  2. Steam or roast the celery root and cauliflower until tender.
  3. Heat olive oil in a small skillet and cook the garlic until it becomes soft and fragrant around 2 minutes.
  4. Transfer half the celery root and cauliflower to a blender and blend until creamy. Add the rest of the celery root and cauliflower and continue to blend.
  5. Drain the cashews and add to the blender along with the garlic and olive oil from the skillet. Blend until creamy.
  6. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. Garnish with fresh chopped chives and butter and enjoy!

Storage

Leftovers can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for a few days. I don’t recommend freezing leftovers.

Pro Tips

Here are a few things you can do to ensure you get excellent mashed “potatoes’ every time:

  • Make sure to blend the vegetables well so the mashed “potatoes” are smooth and creamy.
  • The soaked cashews add the creaminess so don’t skip soaking them.
  • Fresh chives really add a nice touch so try to use fresh instead of dried.

FAQs

Can I use celery instead of celery root?

No, celery root or celeriac is different from celery. You won’t get the same taste or texture if you don’t use celery root.

Can I make these “mashed potatoes” non-dairy?

If you want to make this dish vegan or non-dairy you can substitute a vegan butter for grass-fed butter.
