When I went shopping, day after I returned, I was so excited when I got to Natural Grocers, that I didn’t know which isle to go to first. All that lovely green, orange, red, purple. All those wonderful, fresh apples and other fruits. I really appreciate what we can have immediately. I saw a nice, big Root of Celery and made a wonderful lunch.
1 root of celery (a.k.a Celeriac)
1 half lemon
1/4 cup coconut milk (for vegans)
(1 egg for none vegan)
1/4 cup of Panko bread crumbs
1 Tbsp coconut oil (no substitution)
Peel root of celery and cut out dark root spaces. Cut into 1/4 inch thick slices (or thicker if you like.) Boil and add 1/2 juice of lemon, cook approx. 15 min until semi-soft. Then pat dry with paper towel and place into coconut milk (or egg) season with just a little salt and pepper, press onto Panko crumbs and place into sizzling coconut oil until golden brown on each side. Serve with salad and/or sweet potatoe fries (baked in oven).
