Celeriac and Pear Soup

A pureed soup that is hearty, though not too heavy. The delicate flavors of celeriac and pear harmonize with one another, while garnering support from potato, onion, and garlic. A gratifying meal, especially when sopped up with thick slices of crusty bread and served with a side of tossed mixed greens or spinach salad.

Celeriac Quiche

This quiche is the ilk that makes one's mouth sing. Yes, it is time consuming. Yet it is toothsome. Dreamy. Warm. Cheesy. You may find yourself closing your eyes as you chew, while your dinner companion's brow furrows with the effort of trying to identify the subtle flavor that you know to be nutmeg. Perfection wrapped in pie crust.

Celeriac Thins

Simple, yet captivating. Thin strips of crisp-fried celeriac are delightful on their own, as featured in this recipe. You might also think about coupling these celeriac thins with slender slices of fried potato, fresh fennel, and onion. Serve in an artful arrangement on a colorful plate for an appealing appetizer. Alternatively, celeriac thins make a great gluten-free and flavorful crouton substitute atop your favorite salad. Inviting, no matter how they're served.

Chai-Spiced Crumb Coffee Cake

Cinnamon is the standard spice for topping a crumb coffee cake. This coffee cake keeps the crumb topping and spices it up a little more by using some of the same flavors that are found in chai, including cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and allspice. These spices really help to make the coffee cake memorable - and they also make you want to come back for a second slice. - Helen Dujardin

Chickpea of the Sea Salad

This delicious salad is a dead ringer for tuna salad, but has no tuna (or other animal products) in sight! Spread on hearty, toasted bread with crisp romaine leaves for a yummy sandwich, or place a dollop on a green salad. This is also a nice dip for crackers or vegetable spears. I hope you like it as much as I do!
