Key Nutrition Facts:

Celeriac is also known as celery root, knob celery, or turnip-rooted celery.   It is grown for its ivory-fleshed, delicious root, which contains little starch.  It stores well, and can be roasted, stewed, or mashed. 

Both butternut squash and celeriac provide insoluble fiber, dietary “roughage” often found in fruits and vegetables that helps stool pass smoothly through the gastrointestinal tract.
