CELERY ROOT WITH ORANGE JUICE
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...

1-2 medium size onion (chopped)
2 medium size potato(peeled, cut into cubes )
