High-fibre celeriac fits into your days of cleansing, offering an anti-inflammatory alternative to red meat. A spray of pine nut and currant relish adds elegance to your everyday detox.
Try this recipe with steaks of cauliflower instead—another stellar “meaty” detox vegetable.
Bring medium pot of water to a boil; add celeriac slices, and blanch for 5 to 8 minutes, or until tender but not falling apart. Drain well. Coat celeriac steaks in 1 Tbsp (15 mL) olive oil, smoked paprika, and salt. Heat grill pan to medium-high. Grill celeriac for 3 to 5 minutes per side, until cooked through and grill marks appear. Drizzle with orange juice and zest.
Meanwhile, in small skillet, toast pine nuts; add to medium bowl along with remaining 1 Tbsp (15 mL) oil, currants or raisins, parsley, and vinegar. Toss to combine.
Plate celeriac and top with currant relish. Serve warm.

This vegan take on classic shepherd’s pie is jam-packed with bold and rich flavours that will ensure no one will miss the meat. While a great source of fibre, lentils also contain the highest amount of folate out of all plant-based foods. Oven ready If you don’t have an ovenproof skillet, you’ll need to transfer cooked lentil filling to a baking dish before topping with mashed sweet potatoes and baking.
Cauliflower has been having a moment lately, and this salad proves exactly why. Tender caramelized cauliflower is crowned in a glorious sweet and savoury crumble that will ensure it a place on your table all month long. Of all tree nuts, pecans have the highest concentration of flavonoids, which offer beneficial anti-inflammatory effects, and they also protect your cells from oxidative damage. Crumble perfection This crumble topping is too good not to use it on other preparations. Sprinkle over a carrot ribbon salad to add some extra pizzazz, use as a glorious garnish on a soup or stew, or consider generously spooning over your next vegetable “steak” to add some delicious textural variation.
This gloriously comforting dish gets its creamy lusciousness from a can of white beans. Feel free to use whatever vegetables you have on hand instead of broccoli. Pass the pasta Instead of regular pasta, consider serving this sauce over zucchini noodles, carrot noodles, or cooked spaghetti squash.
This nut-free take on classic queso dip is everything you want and more. Paired with chips, crackers, or crudités, this creamy, zesty, smoky, and oh-so-satisfying dip is easy enough to whip up for a cozy snack or as an appetizer for company. Go nuts! If you’re okay to eat nuts, try substituting sunflower seeds with 1 cup (250 mL) raw cashews.
