Yes, celeriac is my favourite vegetable. I posted several celeriac recipes over the years (find them here). This is yet a new trial, turning them into vegetable balls!
I love a good old wholesome salad as a main dish. I mostly make a salad with grains if I am to eat it alone, but this salad is extremely filling and delicious by itself too. And it’s very easy to make!
Ok, this is it. I finally know what my favourite vegetable in the world is: celeriac. Yes, I decided that last week. Because I love everything about it (and I am probably also feeling a bit sad that it is not well known or much loved vegetable). But do not listen to any of those people, my dear celeriac, you are the BEST!
Ever since I was a kid with a very picky appetite, I loved celeriac. I loved everything about it. I loved its taste, its smell, its weird shape. For years I ate it the same two ways, one as my mother cooked with onions and peas and carrots, the other as raw salad with mayonnaise. And I was happy. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better and tastier, I ate a whole roasted celeriac dish in a quite hipster restaurant in Berlin in October 2016, and it changed my life. I knew, after that moment, that celeriac was the most amazing vegetable.
Celeriac. One of my favourite vegetables. When I was a kid I was one of the pickiest little brats in the whole world possibly. But I always ate the strangest things without any problem, like okra, or eggplant or celeriac. I say strange things because in my family only me and my mother would eat those vegetables, the others would always find something to hate about them. With celeriac, it was the smell. But for me, celeriac’s smell is the best part of it!
Soup! The saviour of the day, if you are feeling down and if you need something to comfort you. It turns a horrible day into a cosy, calm and peaceful one.
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.
Last year, I posted a whole roasted celeriac recipe. This year it is cauliflower. And I am using one of my favourite ingredients lately: turmeric. Let’s roll!
