One of the extraordinary talents of our chefs at the Pritikin Longevity Center is taking food that is normally packed with blood-pressure-raising salt, like soups, and replacing that salt with ingredients like fresh herbs and other seasonings, like porcini powder, that are far more interesting – and tastier – than salt. This Cream of Mushroom and Crab Soup is a superb example.
Celery roots, harvested in late fall, are big ugly-looking bulbs, but delish! They have a sweet refreshing flavor reminiscent of celery and parsley combined, and are an excellent source of vitamin K and fiber. To prepare, cut off the rooted end. Go deep past it, cutting off about a third of the bulb. Trim the skin, then boil, roast, or steam, as we do in Celery Root Hash, a pleasing, healthy alternative to regular hash browns. And just 64 calories per serving.
