ACK!!! I am so excited to share this recipe with you guys! I have found a new love, and it’s celeriac (celery root). As you can see, this delicious root vegetable may look a little rough around the edges (literally), but oh my gosh, it is DELICIOUS, and SO SO good for you!!!
This AH-mazing lil root veggie is packed with nutrients, and makes for an excellent diuretic for those looking to get rid of a little excess bloat. Furthermore, it’s great for the immune system, helps prevent kidney stones, is full of antioxidants, and helps with healthy bones.
You can probably see why I am so excited to share this SUPER easy recipe with you! I cook this celeriac root up and mash it like mashed potatoes, and it turns into an awesome side dish that has a sweet and salty taste to it, and makes me want to eat it all day long. Let’s get to it!
Ingredients: Makes 1 serving
- 1 small to medium sized celery root
- olive oil
- garlic powder
- sea salt
1.) First, you want to use a knife to chop off the top and bottom of the root, then use your knife to peel off the rough edges of the root (basically like peeling a potato, but you have to use a knife because these are so rough around the edges). Next, chop the celeriac into small chunks. Place in a medium sized sauce pan and cover with water. bring to a boil over high heat and cook until the celeriac is quite tender. About 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and drain.
2.) Place the cooked celeriac back in the pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with garlic powder, sea salt, and pepper. Use a masher to mash the celeriac to desired consistency.
3.) Transfer to a bowl, and garnish with some of the leaves from the root, if desired.
You are going to LOVE this stuff! SO yummy! Enjoy! 🙂
