Welcome to the first day of our celebration of #FabulousFallBounty. You can read more about the event: here.

And, once again, many thanks to our event sponsors: Silpat for a handy silicone mat; Le Creuset for a lovely serving platter; and Melissa's Produce for providing the bloggers with a beautiful box of goodies. I utilize the latter two in creating this recipe.

The Creations

Celery Root-Chestnut Mash with Herbed Beets

With the use of Melissa's Peeled & Steamed Baby Beets and Peeled & Steamed Chestnuts, this sidedish was a snap to make.


  • 1 celery root, peeled and cubed (approximately 3 C)
  • water
  • 1 package Melissa's Peeled & Steamed Chestnuts (approximately 2 C chestnuts)
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 1/4 C chicken stock
  • 2 T butter
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • Also needed: food processor or immersion blender
  • 1 package Melissa's Peeled & Steamed Baby Beets (approximately 2 C beets), quartered
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 t balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 C fresh parsley, chopped

Place celery root in a pan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until fork tender, approximately 20 minutes. Drain and set aside. In batches, process cooked celery root and chestnuts in the bowl of a food processor or with an immersion blender. Add in garlic and butter. Pour in chicken stock and pulse until desired texture. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

In a medium mixing bowl, toss together topping ingredients. Set aside until ready to serve.

To serve, spoon celery root-chestnut mash into a serving platter. Top with beets. And serve immediately.
