Health Benefits of Celery Root

on November 29, 2012

Celery Root, also known as “celeriac”, is a winter root vegetable with celery and parsley-like flavor and the texture of a potato. Not the most desirable looking root, but this vegetable is a low-calorie and high-volume vegetable filled with these vitamins and nutrients: Vitamin C Vitamin A Vitamin K Dietary Fiber Potassium Calcium Riboflavin Vitamin B6 Magnesium Phosphorus Iron

Buying Tips:

-Celery Root will be dirty looking. In fact, the dirtier the better! It’s probably fresher if it still has good earth clinging.

-It should also feel heavy and not hollow.

– If buying with stems and leaves attached, look for lively and bright green stems.

– We recommend purchasing organic so your celery root is healthier and tastier.

Cooking Tips:

– Peel and soak briefly with a little of vinegar or lemon juice

– Try it mashed with potatoes, in a soup, or raw.
