“French Fries”….one of the man cub’s favorites

The above vegetables are celery root. Celery root is a very flavorful root vegetable that can be made into a very yummy “french fry”. These fries are so delicious and flavorful you are probably going to end up making them all of the time. And….they are so simple to make that you can make them all of the time. I make a sun dried tomato/roasted garlic/goats milk yogurt sauce to go with them that is just as simple. Or, as the boy likes them, with just plain old ketchup.

You will need:
For celery root fries,
1 or 2 celery roots, peeled and cut into fry sizes
2 Tbs. coconut oil
1/4 cup almond meal
garlic salt to taste

For sauce:
1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, soaked at least ten minutes(save some of this water)
1/2 cup goats milk yogurt
2 largish cloves of garlic, roasted
salt and pepper to taste

To make:
Cut the celery root into fry-like pieces like this.
Put the pieces of celery root into a plastic bag along with the coconut oil, almond meal and garlic salt. Give it a good shake so all of the pieces are covered with the oil, meal and salt.
Place the pieces on aluminum foil lined cookie sheets.
Bake at 425 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes, checking periodically and flipping the fries to make sure all sides get cooked.

In a blender, add sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, yogurt and salt and pepper. Puree. Add some of the water from the sun-dried tomatoes as needed.
Remove from cookie sheets. Dip and enjoy.

(Just a side note: You can make these fries with any kind of root veggie. Sometimes I use parsnips or sweet potatoes and they are amazing!)
