Celeriac (Celery Root), Onions & Lemon

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Bergy

Celeriac is very ugly looking and you do waste a lot peeling it but try it - if you like celery you'll love this vegetable it has a mild celery flavor. The onion & lemon compliment it. I threw this together last night and it was rather good - You have to peel all the knots of the celeric and get in to the white flesh.

Great recipe for a first time celeric eater! I received celeric in this week's organic CSA box and I had no idea what to do with it. This recipe was easy to make and really let us taste what celeric is. The lemon is a great enhancer. Thanks for this recipe!
