Here’s a great winter weather dish that uses an amazing and underutilized root vegetable, celery root, or celeriac.

A close relative to celery, parsnips, and parsley.

Chock full of anti-inflammatory antioxidants, vitamins B6, C & K, and fiber.

It has a sweet & nutty flavor and can be used in lieu of potatoes as I’ve done here.

Plus it has about 1/2 the amount of carbs and calories as a Russet potato too, so what’s not to love about this.

Adding sweet and plump dry-packed sea scallops makes this a dish you’ll learn to love and keep coming back for.

Give this dish a try.
