“I LOVE this dish. Healthy comfort food...go figure. It's the texture variations that make this dish so special. If you like, substitute your own favorite root vegetables. Celery root, turnips, rutabagas or Jerusalem artichokes all work deliciously. Double the butter if you'd like a richer, smoother puree.”
