Man, this vegetable looks scary, but we love it!
But no one I know seems to know what it is or what to do with it. The simple explanation I use: it has the consistency and color of a parsnip, and can replace celery in any soup. But it’s hardier and not stringy like celery.
Yes, in raw form it looks like a heart ripped out of a huge humanoid vegetable, but get over it.
After peeling it with a knife, just chop it up into cubes and add to soup. We add it to vegetable mixes, such as Mirepoix, and freeze it in bags for ready-to-use meal portions.
And kids wont even know it’s there. Unless they hear it still beating … 😉
