What is Celeriac?

Celeriac is a root vegetable closely related to celery. This vegetable is crunchy, like a carrot, with a subtle celery flavour, less-watery which goes well with the sweetness of carrots.


Why Greek Yoghurt?

Greek yoghurt is an excellent source of calcium, contains probiotics, which support a healthy bacterial balance in the gut.


The difference between the regular yoghurt and Greek yoghurt is that the latest is a thicker, creamier yoghurt with twice the protein content. Greek yoghurt is strained three times, so most of the liquid is removed.


Prep Time: 20 min Serve: 6-8
