Celeriac – the unsung hero
There is a celeriac revolution going on in the Cowap household! As we swap high starch carbohydrates such as potatoes out of our diet, we are exploring the glory of so many other vegetables on offer and their versatility! Celeriac is at the top of our hit list; a vegetable I have long ignored due to its ugliness and my utter naivety as to what to do with it! When I was told to ‘just treat it like a potato’, a whole world of tastiness and experimentation opened up to me!
It’s a little tough to peel similar to a swede, but with a good knife and a little brute force, you’re soon in! Chop it like a potato to your preferred shape and then boil, bake, cook as you wish! This unattractive vegetable has a nutty celery-like taste and a very similar texture to potato in its various forms.
Celeriac chips – who’d have thought? Parboiled and roasted for 45 minutes with chilli flakes, oil, mixed herbs and Himalyan pink salt – they were divine. Enjoyed aside a fillet steak, roasted carrot batons & asparagus! Totally Clean & Lean and totally delicious!
Celeriac mash – just yum! Boiled, mashed and mixed with butter or double cream with a little Himalyan pink salt and black pepper. Enjoyed with the Clean & Lean beef stew (recipe card found at the Butchery or here.)
And then there was the celeriac roasty revolution! Parboiled and then over roasted in oil and Himalyan pink salt. They tasted divine and I even hoodwinked some family members to thinking they were eating roast potatoes as part of their roast dinner!
Oh and I haven’t even mentioned the celeriac dauphinoise – wow! See our creation here!
