Sauteed kohlrabi and celery root with lemon

This is such a simple meal but still something you probably never thought of! I certainly didn´t and I was surprised how two vegetables can create such a satisfying dish.

First you have to grate your two vegetables: one medium celery root (grate fine) and one bigger kohlrabi (grate coarse). Pour a couple tablespoons of oil in a deeper pan or pot, place the celery root inside, turn on the flame and sautee the celery root until lightly browned and fragrant, adding a pinch of salt at the beginning. Add the grated kohlrabi and stir-fry until it is softened as well. At the end sprinkle with lemon juice to your liking – the lemon adds a great final touch so you don´t have to be afraid of it!

I had the veggies with some rice and dulse seaweed flakes sprinkled on top.

Buckwheat with sauteed onion, roots and smoked tofu

Another one of those quick dishes when you come tired home from work and need something pronto!

I cooked buckwheat in 1:2 grain to water ratio, first bringing the water to boil with a pinch of salt, then tipping in the buckwheat. It cooks only about 15 minutes. Meanwhile I fried fine slices of onion together with tiny cubes of parsley root, celery root and smoked tofu on oil, untill all became crispy and golden. I topped the grain with the mixture and served the meal with blanched savoy cabbage.  The fried root veggies and the smoky tofu particularly give a sensation of bacon 😀

Celery root bacon

I´ve never seen recipes for “celery root bacon” in foreign macrobiotic cookbooks but for some reason here in Czech Republic it´s a big hit 😀 It´s really easy to make and it does bear a certain resemblance to fatty bacon bits…with some imagination, that is…

Just cut up celery root into tiny cubes (the smaller, the better they get fried) and fry them in a skillet with a generous amount of oil. I flavored them with some salt, dried oregano and dried basil (added towards the end so that they don´t burn).

Served with brown rice with a sprinkle of gomasio and dulse flakes, and blanched turnips.
