How Kyndle fought a celery root, and won.

This ugly SOB is celery root. IMG_9622

It’s one of those veggies you bypass at the grocery because a.) it’s dirty and b.) its intimidating. Nothing about that looks appetizing. WELL I decided to put it in a dish. Typical.

Fall gives us some of the most beautiful and flavorful flavor profiles of the year. Root vegetables and squash are at their peak.  And it’s finally chilly enough to want something warm and filling.

This is my take on a Gordon Ramsey recipe the mixes up chicken pot pie!

Roasted Autumn vegetable chicken pie


  • 1 medium butternut squash, peeled and chopped into a large dice
  • 1 celery root, peeled and chopped into a large dice
  • 1 leek, washed well and chopped into a half rounds
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 1 roasted chicken, meat pulled and diced
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • Fresh parsley
  • EVOO
  • 1 sheet prepared puff pastry

First, crank your oven to 400 degrees.  Place all you chopped veggies on a sheet tray and toss them in EVOO, salt, pep and thyme. Bake until fork tender.

In a heavy dutch oven heat 1 teaspoon EVOO, add the garlic to cook it until fragrant. Be sure to keep stirring it so it doesn’t burn! Add your roasted veggies, chicken, and  chicken stock. Stir and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the sour cream and your done!!

Bake the puff pastry in squares as directed on the box! You them as a top OR eat this like a hearty stew. A sprinkle of parsley and you’re all set.
