(aka Celery Root)
APPLE & CELERIAC SLAW | Vegan + Gluten free + Paleo + Keto |
Just in case your grocery store is out of the basics like greens and broccoli (or maybe you're just sick of them), I'm going to post recipes for some lesser utilized foods.
The next installment in our wacky foods series... CELERIAC. Aka celery root. 🌱 This plant dates back to at least the 1600s. It's quite possibly the least attractive food I've every seen, but I also love it for that. 🌱 It's packed with Vitamins C and K, as well as fiber. It's low glycemic, so a really nice alternative to potatoes if you're watching blood sugar or carbs. You can roast it, mash it, and even make it into chips! 🌱 A 2018 animal study has shown the antioxidants found in celeriac as a supportive treatment option for Parkinson's Disease. How about that! Stay tuned later today for my favorite celeriac recipe!
