Celeriac, more commonly referred to as celery root, is a variety of celery that’s grown especially for its crisp, white-fleshed, knobby root, rather than for its stalks and leaves. Not the most appealing looking root with a tangle of gnarly roots attached, which grows just beneath the surface of the soil. But just beneath its skin – the interior is snow white in color and absorbs broth well, so that it’s creamy when puréed.
Once the peel is removed, you’ll find flesh that’s nutty, sweet, and full of a delicate celery flavor. Like other winter-root vegetables, celeriac is hearty and versatile, and can be prepared in so many different ways. The interior is snow white in color and absorbs broth well, so that it’s creamy when puréed.
This is quite an easy recipe – the most challenging step is peeling the celery root. (See recipe for how-to.)
Look for solid, hard roots – an older root will be hallow inside, and beyond its prime.
Celery root is low in calories; 66 per cup, with some notable fiber, moderate carbohydrates and a great dose of potassium.
