How to Make It

Step 1

Place celeriac and potatoes in a saucepan; cover with water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 12 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain.

Step 3

Bring the milk to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat; add apple, reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 7 minutes.

Step 4

Place potato mixture, apple mixture, 1 1/2 teaspoons butter, and salt in a food processor; process until smooth. Set aside.

Step 5

Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, carrot, and celery; saute 5 minutes. Add turnip; cook 3 minutes. Add mushrooms, parsley, savory, and thyme; cook 2 minutes or until vegetables are tender and liquid almost evaporates. Sprinkle with flour; stir well, and cook 2 minutes. Stir in apple juice; cook 2 minutes. Cool to room temperature. Stir in cheese.

Step 6

Steam spinach, covered, 5 minutes or until done. Drain and coarsely chop.
