Baked Celeriac / Root Celery with Creamy Blue Cheese : Low Carb

This recipe suggestion shows a delicious low-carb snack, or appetizer, made from oven-baked celeriac /root celery. Just serve with a simple spinach salad and a wonderfully creamy blue cheese... yum!

Serves Four
4g carb per serving

900 g celeriac / root celery
2 – 3 tablespoons olive oil
sea salt and pepper
100 g baby spinach
80 ml hazelnuts
3 tablespoons butter
100 g mushrooms
1 red onion
100 – 150 g blue cheese or gorgonzola cheese or roquefort cheese, at room temperature

Recipe instructions are here

Granted, celeriac / root celery is not the prettiest vegetable in the produce aisle - but celeriac / celery root is beautiful on the inside!

Tips on how to Treat It:
1) Shop for firm, unblemished roots that feel heavy for their size, with a greenish blush.
2) Store in the fridge, unpeeled, in an unsealed plastic bag, with a dry paper towel to absorb excess moisture, for up to 3 weeks.
3) Scrub celery roots well, then trim the top and bottom with a sharp knife. Peel skin with a vegetable peeler, then use knife to trim any recessed or pocked parts of the root.

All the best Jan

Hope you have a great weekend.
