Celeriac (aka celery root) is a type of root vegetable. Most of you are probably familiar with the green part of the plant - the stalk.
Celery root is higher in carbs than the stalk but it's also delicious. It's a great low-carb alternative to potato-based recipes such as mashed potatoes, hash browns or potato chips. It's important to note that it's not "zero-carb" as no root vegetable is (only with the exception of parsley root, which has very low net carbs).
When I cook with celery root, I usually use it with other low-carb vegetables such as cauliflower, turnip or rutabaga (aka swede) to make sure I don't end up with too many carbs. Celeriac chips are delicious, however, together with Mixed Vegetable Chips, I wouldn't recommend these for a very low-carb diet (induction phase).
