Wild Rice with Celeriac
Use this quick “cheaters” recipe, or add some tiny diced celeriac to your own favorite wild rice hotdish. To make an entree, add some leftover, cooked and chopped/shredded turkey or chicken.
1 c. tiny diced celeriac
3 c. just-cooked, hot wild rice (or re-heated)
1-2 tsp. lemon juice (to your taste)
¼ c. snipped celery leaves
Salt and pepper
2 Tbsp. soft butter
Place the celeriac in a microwave dish with 1-2 Tbsp. water. Microwave for 1-3 minutes, until the celeriac is just firm-tender, but still slightly crunchy. Combine all the ingredients and serve warm.
Raw, peeled celeriac browns quickly when exposed to air. If you're not cooking right away, have a “holding tank” at the ready, to buy yourself time and prevent discoloration–- add a splash of lemon juice, vinegar, or other acid to a bowl of water (1-2 tsp. per cup is fine). Simply add your cut pieces to the water as you work, then remove as you prepare your dish.
