The 'loving'this week' posts are all about the little moments in your days and weeks that have tickled your heart.
This week, I have renewed my love affair with celeriac. We may be losing summer fruit, but with the change of season, we are gaining winter-appropriate vegetables.
I discovered celeriac last year, when I enjoyed it mashed and roasted. I may have eaten just a little too much in too short a period of time - a reliable way to cool one's affection for a food - but after a 6 month break from this rather ugly vegetable, I am happy to have it back in my life.
The first step in renewing my affection? Celeriac fries. Oh, the beautiful simplicity of celeriac fries.
Making these is so simple there is no real need for a recipe. Heat your oven to medium-high, and then take one celeriac, cut off its top and bottom, peel the sides, and slice into thick (or thin) chunks. Line some baking trays with baking paper, lay out the celeriac slices, spray with some spray oil, season with paprika and salt (or to taste), and bake for 45 to 60 minutes.
I ate some plain, and then had the rest for lunch aside a mix of black eyed beans, carrot, red pepper, basil, and tomato salsa.
And I loved every mouthful.
