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.
