Pork chop with baked celery root

Celery 2.0. This velvety version delivers notes of celery flavor with an earthy, creamy edge. It's like cream of celery soup meets a potato—sort of. Pair it with a pork chop and top both with flavored butter. A new YUM!

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Rinse celery root; scrub with a brush and rinse under running water to remove any stubborn soil. Do not peel.
  3. Dry with a paper towel. Cut the roots at the bottom of the bulb to make a flat surface large enough so that the celery bulb is stable standing on this flat end.
  4. Place root in a baking dish. Brush or drizzle with olive oil. Season with sea salt and black pepper.
  5. Bake celery root for 60-90 minutes, or until the root is soft inside. Slice into 4-6 pieces.
  6. While the celery root is baking, mix the ingredients for the leek butter. Cook the pork chop—either in a frying pan or on the grill. Serve celery root and pork, side-by-side, topped with the leek butter.
