Celery root is a interesting vegetable that can take on different forms. I’ve used it successfully as a potato substitute but it can also replace rice. Prepare the celery root but peeling it and adding it to a food processor. You want the pieces to be similar to the size of rice.
To make the “rice” taste like Mexican rice, add 1/2 can tomato paste, 1 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 2 tbsp instant vegetable stock and 3 tbsp olive oil.
Mix the ingredients well and place it on a baking pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until the rice is toasted. It may take longer if you have a thicker layer of celery root.
The rice is ready when it takes on a deeper red colour and is dry enough for the pieces to be separate. Enjoy with your favourite dishes!
