Last week I decided to experiment with a new vegetable - celery root or celeriac (or celery bulb as it was called in my shady vegetable market).
It's definitely not an attractive vegetable, but I really wanted to try it. I had no idea how to prepare it, but then I found a recipe for Celery Root, Potato, and Parsnip Soup on the Foodie/Nutritionist Blog that looked relatively easy, and like something that we would probably like. I pretty much followed the recipe exactly, but I skipped the evaporated milk and truffle oil, and instead added 1 additional cup of water and 1 cup of white kidney beans (for protein and texture). I didn't try the celery root on its own, but it smelled just like celery when I peeled and cut it. The soup itself was delicious, but it tasted more like parsnip to me than anything else. I'm not complaining though because Henry ate 3 bowls' worth...and then tried to eat the bowl!
Happy and (mostly) healthy eating!
