Roasted Celeriac and Brussels Sprouts w. Rosemary and Duck Fat

This is a great recipe idea from Christopher Clark ... he just loves 'simple, delicious cooking for optimal health and wellness'. Celeriac is a low carbers super food - well surely almost anyone's super food, and combined with Brussels sprouts, that lovely herb - Rosemary - and duck fat (which I love) it's a winner. You can just taste this dish already can't you? So read on and do make this dish soon ... you'll be so pleased you did!

Serves Four
1 celeriac, peeled and chopped into small-bite pieces
1/2 pound Brussels sprouts, stems removed and sliced into halves
2-3 tablespoons fresh rosemary, stems removed, finely chopped
4 tablespoons duck fat or fat of your choice
Salt and pepper

Peel the celeriac. Chop into bite-size pieces. Prepare the rosemary and Brussels sprouts. A few tablespoons of finely chopped rosemary will suffice.

Toss the chopped celeriac, Brussels sprouts, and rosemary with the duck fat, a few pinches of salt, and some black pepper. Roast at 375F for about 40 minutes. Remove from oven when veggies are tender and lightly browned.

Snowbird said... that is interesting! I think it would work well with olive oil instead of duck fat. Yum!xxx

Snowbird - many thanks for your comment.
Yes, do use the fat or oil of your choice.

I just think celeriac is great
I just think Brussels are great

... and when put together like this - it's a winning recipe idea.

All the best Jan

I am really enjoying all your recipes Jan, in fact I enjoy the whole blog. I am not diabetic but like educating myself with the articles written and all this information. I do have friends who are diabetic and when they come over for dinner I have lots of healthy recipes to try, for them and for us, as I think this fits in with putting healthier food on the table.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving such nice comments on my blog. Enjoy the rest of your week.

I'll have to look for the celeriac ... I don't think I've ever tried it. Love almost any roasted vegetables ... except for Brussel sprouts ... I've tried and tried, but just don't care for them. :)

Carla - many thanks for your comment.
Brussels and Celeriac work well together, as in this recipe.
Brussels with cubed pancetta work well together ... see here

Brussels are tasty on their own too!
So nice to know your son LOVES Brussels, sometimes children are not too keen, and have to grow into the taste.

Enjoy the rest of your week

All the best Jan
