Celery Root Apple Slaw

Celery Root Apple Slaw


 Celery Root

Some of you may have never heard of celery root, also know as celeriac.  It is celery of a variety that forms a large swollen turniplike root that can be eaten cooked or raw.   Here’s a picture.

Celery Root Apple Slaw


The outside is rough and brown and the inside is a creamy white color.  It tastes like a cross between celery and a potato to me.  The texture is kind of like a potato, but it can be eaten raw or cooked.  It seems that  some of my readers are not open to trying new ingredients, but I hope to change that over time!  If you can find Celery Root/Celeriac in your grocery store or farmers market then I highly suggest you give this recipe a try.   An easy way to get used to the flavor is to boil it with potatoes when making creamy mashed potatoes.  It gives your mashed potatoes a little kick, but it’s not overwhelming!



If you can’t find celery root then you could make this slaw recipe the old fashioned way with cabbage instead!  You could even try using large radishes.  I found some organic radishes at the farmers market the other day and immediately thought of using them in this recipe!

  • ¼ cup red onion
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 2 teaspoons agave nectar
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • ¾ cup water filtered if possible

  • 2 gala apples cored, cut into strips
  • ½ cup raisins any type
  • ½ cup roasted pumpkin seeds a.k.a pepitas

  2. Place the celery root and apples in a large bowl. Pour the sauce in the bowl and toss everything together. Top with raisins and pumpkin seeds.
Recipe Notes

Celery Root might be tough for some of you to cut. Some food processors have the attachment that cuts vegetables into strips so check to see if yours does that. You could probably use a grater too.
If you can't find Celery Root, or think you won't like it, just use about 3 cups regular green or red cabbage instead. It will be delicious!

    OMG! Looking at this food while fasting is a big challenge for me! haha! but I am tempted to try this lemonade smoothie. The ingredients are so surprising that I almost cannot imagine the taste but I would love to find out,.. definitely will try really soon as this sounds like perfect at the time of breaking fast.

      Thank you! I also think this is a great smoothie to break a fast with because it’s not too heavy. Thank you for the kind words!

    I really admire people who can only eat fruits and veggies and no any meat at all. I tried cutting my meats and just eating veggies fish and sometime breast chicken but I can only do it for 1 to 2 weeks.

    That smoothy looks amazing! It’s funny because I ate 2 large watermelons a week while I was pregnant with my daughter and she seems fairly unimpressed with it now. Maybe I ate too much while I was pregnant too!

    I have never tried the celery root and I’m not sure where to buy that in the local market. The watermelon lemonade smoothie looks too refreshing! I love that it’s packed with health benefits, too!

    Well, I admire Vegan people because they maintained their food intake all the time. Unlike my family and myself, really into meats, seafood, and veggies too. I think, it’s a matter of preference in life and eating habits. Altogether, the same thing I ate ever since.

    I’m a bit frustrated about juicing and making lovely smoothies like yours, as I would want to do it, but realized that where we are, it’s a bit more pricey to do so. I have all these smoothie recipes in my kindle and I read a lot of recipe blogs like yours, so I do hope I get to try them one days soon.

    The burger looks good. Turkeys are expensive. I might use chicken instead.

    My family has members who have life threatening multiple food allergies, so since we have SO many restrictions already it’s hard to go on a specific diet we want to. We use all that we can and use it all. I really like these recipes, they all look SO good, I wish we could have it all. Mental notes – for all that we can have and customize! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

      I’m sure it’s very hard for you all living with such a strict diet. I’m so grateful I don’t have many allergies to foods. Good Luck and Thanks!

    The kids had watermelon smoothie after lunch! One of their favorites! Will experiment on adding the lemonade. They’re not big fans of citrus-y concoctions.

      Great, I think they’ll like this. It’s not too citrus-y!

    Hi Monique, I found you on Instagram and immediately checked out your website. I love it! Your picture in the about section is radiant. I love watermelon, and it was my obsession during my pregnancy. I am always looking for different ways to use it in recipes or drinks. Thank you for sharing!

      Sorry for taking so long to respond. I’ve been making some backend changes to my site for a while and haven’t checked comments lately, but thank you very much for the kind words. I don’t know what it is with watermelon and pregnancy, but several people have been telling me they craved it during pregnancy also! It’s very interesting. Thank you again, I appreciate your comment.
