Instructions

Step 1

Fill an extra large pot with water about 1/3 way up and heat on high. Prep your veggies in the meantime. Usually, these vegetables are blended into soups, but I wanted to keep a chunky texture, so I made a stew instead.

Step 2

Peel and dice the celeriac and add to the pot. Celery root has a much lower glycemic index than potatoes, and a very subtle, aromatic flavor.

Step 8

Since I didn't have vegetable bouillon or broth, I added salt, sesame oil, and some serious seasoning (curry mix and paprika) for flavor. Feel free to experiment and season to taste here, would love to hear about your successful combinations!

Once the pot is boiling, turn down heat and let it simmer for 20-30 more minutes. Stir occasionally. Serve when the oats look done! Garnish with a lemon wedge if you'd like.
