Celery Root and Parsnip Puree

Healthy Thanksgiving Side: Celery Root and Parsnip Puree

For some, omitting mashed potatoes from a Thanksgiving feast is sacrilege. But if you're looking to save more than 100 calories, swapping out the creamy side with something comparably delicious is in order. A lightened-up celery root (also called celeriac) and parsnip puree is an excellent lower-calorie and lower-fat substitute, with the addition of added fiber and protein.

I used almond milk in my recipe, but any type of milk works. I also omitted butter but used two-percent Greek yogurt to add a little bit of creaminess.
