Celeriac is the root of a special variety of celery. It was mentioned in Homer’s Odyssey as selinon. Celeriac is also called turnip-rooted celery, knob celery, or celery root.

While it is far from the most beautiful vegetable you will ever see, hidden beneath that rough exterior (like some people you might know) is a delicate flesh.

Celeriac is a great low-carb substitute for potatoes. Make oven fries for a crunchy yum!

Oven chips (oven fries)
• Take one large celeriac, peel its ugly outer skin
• Cut into slices and then into fat chips
• Boil quickly for 2 minutes or so in boiling salted water, uncovered
• Drain the chips
• Spread over a baking sheet in a single flat layer
• Add a generous amount of oil, season with salt and pepper
• Roast in a hot oven for 30-35 minutes at around 450F
(See “Low-Carb Potato Substitute”)

Celeriac weighs in at only 66 calories per cup, so you can enjoy a lot with no guilt!

This week, become more adventurous. Rather than just staying with the familiar, stretch yourself. A whole world awaits your discovery. And we are not just talking about vegetables.
