Celery Root (Celeriac) Salad

My lovely cousin, whom I saw after 9 years in Paris recently, gave a wonderful tip: steam the vegetables! And as soon as I came back from Paris, I started steaming, oh boy, the vegetables never tasted better.

Today’s steamed vegetable is a dear one: celery root. By steaming it, I realized that aside from how healthy it is, it is also extremely fresh and it preserves all its taste and beautiful smell. Besides, it cooks in about 5 minutes!


250 gr. celery root (in K-market and in many other markets as I saw, they sell celery root in package, each is about 250 gr.)
2 table spoons of red wine vinegar
1/2 table spoon of mustard
1 coffee spoon of sugar
1 table spoon of water
1 table spoon of olive oil
2 spring onions
Fresh parsley, salt and pepper

1. Peel celery root and cut it into small pieces. Put them immediately into the steamer pot before they turn their colour, and start cooking.

2. In a small bowl, mix red wine vinegar and mustard. I used Clovis vinegar and mustard as seen in the picture. Clovis also has a delicious Dijon mustard, you can use that as well.

3. Add sugar, water and olive oil into the mixture and continue mixing.

4. In a separate place, chop spring onions and parsley into small pieces.

5. When celery is ready, take it out of steamer and put into a big bowl. Add spring onions and parsley. Finally, add the sauce mixture and mix them well altogether. Add some salt and pepper in the end.

And here it is, delicious, healthy and very very light!
