The idea for this recipe came from something I saw in River Cottage Veg By Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall but his recipe used sweet potatoes and peanuts. The reason I wanted to change it is that celeriac has a low GL than sweet potato and although there are some benefits to peanuts they are not the most nutritious nuts and I love brazil nuts.

This is a surprisingly easy recipe and would be great shared between 2 with a green salad, alternatively you could serve it with a vegan protein like a tofu schnitzel and some steamed broccoli and then it can be a great side dish for 4 people.

Celeriac give it a sweet flavour which is offset by the savoury flavour of the brazil nuts which is all lifted by the addition of lime juice. There are lots of great things in this dish and it is just fantastic for your health with high amounts of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants it is sure to be a feel good food.
