Mushroom satay, chicory salad, and celeriac rice

Updated: Feb 22, 2019

If you fancy a change from cauliflower rice then try celeriac rice instead!

I came up with this celeriac rice recipe a while ago, and it has featured in a previous post. Todays lunch dish was mushroom satay, chicory salad, and celeriac rice. (The recipe for celeriac rice serves 4)

Unfortunately at the moment I can't eat garlic, as I became intolerant to it. (One of my favourite flavours ever!)

However the addition of garlic into the recipe would be great, so I put it in as optional on the recipe. I used to always have garlic in my satay, and on my tomatoes! It still tastes great without it though!

I use good quality organic peanut butter from the health shop, as the ones you buy in the supermarket often have gluten and additives in them!

I also like to soak my walnuts for a few hours to remove some of the phytic acid. This also improves the flavour. I think  they taste less bitter after soaking.

Serves 2

  • 1 tablespoon of coconut aminos (this is a slightly sweeter soy free version of tamari, but you could use tamari)
