Puree of Celeriac with Pears

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/puree_of_celeriac_with_pears.html

From EatingWell:  November/December 1995

With its distinctive earthy flavor, celeriac (celery root) makes an interesting alternative to mashed potatoes or pureed squash. Pears add a touch of sweetness.

6 servings, 2/3 cup each | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Place celeriac in a large saucepan. Cover with water, add 1 tablespoon lemon juice and season the water with salt. Bring to a boil. Adjust heat to maintain a gentle boil and cook, covered, for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, peel pears and cut into 1-inch chunks. Add the pears to the pan; continue cooking until the celeriac and pears are very tender, about 10 minutes longer. Drain and puree in a food processor.
  3. Return the puree to the pan. Stir in thyme and butter (or oil). Season with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
