Nutritional Properties of Celery Root

Seasonal Eats: What's the Best Way to Eat Celery Root?

Ugly, or at least unassuming, celery root's appearance may mean you may normally overlook it at the market. The odd round-shaped root, also known as celeriac, looks like it may be holding something unappealing under all that knobby outer layer, but in fact, it adds a refreshing taste to any Winter meal.

Celery root is high in many nutrients, including fiber, potassium, and vitamin C. Not only that, the healthy vegetable is very versatile: you can puree it with mashed potatoes for an extra spike of celery/parsley flavor, make it into a slaw, or roast with rosemary, black pepper, and a little olive oil for a hearty side dish.

Celery root is best in the Fall and Winter, so now's the perfect time to add some to your healthy home-cooked meals. If you're a fan, what's your favorite way to make celery root?

I love celeriac! Roasted, in soups, or the way my mum prepares it: grated root vegetables salad (with carrots and beets, with or without lettuce) with olive oil and lemon juice. It's delicious!

I like to cook it with a little rice and make a puree. Here's the recipe.

Love it! I usually make it as simple and delicious salad. Peel and grate the celery, and then mix it with some lemon juice, sour cream, add some salt and put some parsley on the top. You can add some grated carrots, too. You can also make the celery/beets salad, with some lemon juice and olive oil dressing. All the vegetables should be raw.
