Why we love celeriac
Similar in flavour to celery but with creamy, firm flesh. Celeriac takes on flavours extremely well and is very versatile – add it to curries and stews, add it raw to zingy remoulade or use it in place of a steak for a vegan meal. Buy it with the leaves on, if possible, as they are the best indication of freshness and quality.
Health benefits of celeriac
Celeriac is a robust root vegetable that's high in fibre, so eating more of it may promote a healthy gut and digestive system. It's also a good source of vitamin C, especially when eaten raw.
