If you like things a little bit gnarly, then there's a fairly high chance

you'll like the look of celeriac. If not, then this is certainly quite an ugly

thing, an appearance difficult to overcome if you've not tried it before,

and it takes a bit of skill to getting past the exterior and preparing it

for cooking. Worth it though!

MAKING CARBS COUNT

Also known as turnip-rooted

celery, celery root and

even knob celery, celeriac

is as nutritious as any root

vegetable, primarily being

composed of starch. These things are very

solid, don't drop a celery root on your foot,

it will feel like your dropped a bricks on it.

Choose smaller 'bulbs' (officially a 'bulbous

hypocotyl') as they may be sweeter, larger

ones may be a bit tougher and woodier.

Celeriac originated in the

Mediterranean but its cultivation has

spread far, into Africa, North America and

Siberia. It has many regional variants,

with rather wonderful names like Goliath,

Kojak and Snow White. A common and

affordable winter root, celeriac is usually

cooked before eating, but can be grated

and eaten raw or added to salads. Low

in cholesterol and saturated fats, celeriac

has anti-microbial properties that mean it

can boost immunity, helping to improve

colon health and overall wellbeing. It is

also high in dietary fibre and acts as an

aid to healthy digestion.

Tasting very much of celery, celeriac

can be aded to winter stews and soups

or served mashed as an accompaniment.

You can make celeriac chips, and it's

often used as a substitute for potatoes,

or make mash with half celeriac and half

potato. Bear in mind that celeriac has half

the calories of potatoes (before any butter

or oil is added). Oddly, it's quite a salty

vegetable, so if you are on a restricted

CELERIAC ATTACK!
