Celery Root (a.k.a celeriac) is a great substitute for potatoes. It can be cooked in many of the same ways as potatoes, but is a far healthier alternative. It is is a great source of dietary fiber, vitamin B6, magnesium, potassium and manganese, and a very good source of vitamin C and phosphorus... celery root has  the best flavor when it's cooked with orange...


2-3 medium size salary roots( peeled, cut into cubes)
1-2 medium size onion (chopped)
2 medium size potato(peeled, cut into cubes )
2 medium size carrot(peeled, sliced)
2 cups of orange juice, preferably freshly squeezed
juice from 1 lemon
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tsp sugar
salt and black pepper

saute onions in olive oil
add carrots,potatoes and celery roots                                                                                    
add orange juice and lemon juice,salt and sugar
cook on high heat for 5 minutes 
lower the heat and cook for another 20-30 minutes
check one carrot slice with a fork, if it is tender, remove the pot from the heat.

cool before serving
