They say that we "eat with our eyes," and if that is true, then it's no shock that people often pass on celery root. It's an unattractive, bumpy, rough root vegetable with a pale brown skin. But inside, the creamy white center is packed with refreshing, crisp flavor. Think celery meets white turnip.
