Kitchen tip: To make celeriac noodles, cut off the top and bottom of the celeriac and stand it on a cutting board. Peel off the skin with a knife. When spiralizing press it firmly while twirling to get long, even noodles. If your spiralizer has a removable blade, hold it in place with your other hand. A large celeriac yields about 1 kg or 8 cups spiralized.

Kitchen tip: To sautée, add 1 tbsp oil or butter and 1/2 tsp salt for every 8 cups. It takes about 5 min to cook over medium heat until almost tender. It will cook down to about half of the original amount.
