Celeriac Steak was inspired when I had a non-vegan friend visiting for Board Games. Rummaging through the local farmer’s market at Parliament Hill and the sweet nutty smell of celeriac came wafting through the air calling me. Time was not my side with an eventful day and cycling home I envisaged a nice serving of Celeriac Steak.
Celeriac is native to the Mediterranean and Nordic region. It has a subtle complex flavour, sweet, nutty, celery-like and soft once cooked. It often takes a back seat to parsnips but it’s incredibly versatile and super lush.
Celeriac Steak is vegan and paleo.
