  • 1 celery root celeriac
  • 1 garlic clove smashed
  • 2 tsp dried sage or 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock or water
  • Coconut oil or fat of choice
  • 2 Tbsp coconut cream or coconut butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Peel and dice the celery root into equal-sized pieces. They don’t have to be perfect, but evenly-diced cubes will cook more evenly.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown the celery root in a spoonful of coconut oil. Season with the sage (or thyme) and salt & pepper.
  3. Once the pieces are browned, add the garlic and stock (or water). Put a lid on the skillet and steam the celery root on medium-low heat until cooked through, about 15-20 more minutes. Check to make sure the veggies aren’t getting too dried out and add a bit more water if necessary.
  4. Add the coconut cream and mash the celery root to the desired consistency. I left mine a bit chunky. Season with more salt and pepper if desired.
