Add me to the list of people for whom this was a gloppy mess! I thought I was better than them and could do this right and sadly today I’m not better than anyone. Celery scented rice pudding for us tonight ;-P

Has anyone made this interesting recipe with a substitute for the rice, which has such high levels of arsenic? Am wondering if oatmeal will work.

I loved it. I used white turnips instead and instant brown rice for a faster cook. I put the brown rice in for 15 minutes. The turnips cooked very quickly so both were done at the same time. A very delicate flavor, however I felt like it had a more texture so adding more rice may be necessary if you want to place it as a side dish. Any suggestions on what I can eat it with....(maybe sautéed onions and fennel on top?)

This is exactly what I was expecting and absolutely delicious. I didn't have a problem with the cooking time/rice. I also added a sliced clove of garlic to the milk for flavor. Will definitely make again!

Made this last night for the first time and was eagerly anticipating it. Sadly I have to say I did not enjoy the flavor or texture. The taste was too sweet and texture gloppy. Not unlike a rice pudding. Will try another variation with potato next time.

I had the same issues with flavor and texture as the other commenters, and ended up with bland lumpy glop---a surprise, as genius recipes is such a great series. I like the idea of using milk and rice, though: if I try this again, I will definitely reduce the rice to a scant 1/4 cup and cook both rice and celeriac (I like to add chestnuts, too) in water for most of the process, pouring some water off to replace with whole milk at the end, immersion blend right in the pot, and forget the cream.

I found this pretty bland and I LIKE delicate flavours. It was like rice pudding with hints of celery. If you wait to add the rice as per the recipe, the celeriac will be done long before the rice is.

I made this and loved it, but next time I will cook the rice in the milk for five minutes to get it done at the same time as the celeriac. When I made as written, the rice was still a little crunchy in the puree. Also, I oversalted the milk at the beginning (oops) so I had to add one cooked, mashed russet potato to correct the seasoning. The result was wonderful, with no butter at all! I am serving it tonight with chicken braised in white wine with fennel and onions...can't wait.

I have always wanted to try cooking this interesting looking vegetable but wasn't sure what to serve with it. This looks simple enough not to overwhelm and enticing enough that me food curious teenage daughter will try it without worrying about her dancer's waistline! Thanks!
