a new favorite veg.

i do love my meat, but sometimes there is nothing more comforting that a big bowl of vegetables...

Celery Root Puree

2 celery roots, peeled and cut into small chunks
1 tbs white rice
1 (or 2) cloves of garlic
1 1/2 c milk
salt and pepper
1 tbs butter

~ put the celery roots, rice, garlic, and milk in a saucepan. season with salt & pepper
~ bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 15-20 minutes, the roots will get tender
~ in a food processor, add butter to the milk-root mix and process until smooth
~ season with salt and pepper and serve

this is very good with pork tenderloin, but this time i served it with a pile of vegetables (eggplant, zuchinni, mushrooms, red peppers, onions, tomatoes, garlic) that i cooked in a 350 degree oven after tossing them in a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and chili flakes. it was a very cozy meal.

This looks delicious! I wandered over here from Kim's blog, and it's nice to get some words from you.

Corner Gas is hilarious... my mum, grandma and step-grandpa were all born out west in Saskatchewan. Trying to get Adam to see why it's so good has been like trying to acculturate someone to British humour, though. I think he's starting to get it...
