Have you entered the Low Carb Snack Pack Attack giveaway? There is still time and there will be TWO winners for this giveaway!
I’ve heard about celery root (aka celeriac) before as a great low carb alternative to be used in a celeriac recipe, as it is not very starchy for root vegetable. But have you SEEN a celery root? They are monsters! If you thought a rutabaga was ugly, wait until you meet a celery root. I think a pretty scary Halloween costume would be going out as a giant celery root.
These jerks require a trim AND a peel – ok, it wasn’t that hard at all and I got a pound of celeriac after I hacked it into pieces.
And surprise, surprise – it tastes like celery. Celery root….tastes like celery. And honestly, even raw it was quite a delightful taste. I really look forward to experimenting more with celeriac.
With only ten net carbs per cup and a different, yet yummy, light taste, I made an extremely savory mash with the celery root. Baked it with a yummy almond-cheese topping and scarfed it down as my main meal (and fed it to some friends as a side – they loved it).
