Celery Root Stew With Chickpeas
Today I want to talk about a big problem everyone who cooks regularly experiences. End of february and whole march is the hardest times to find something to cook. Winter vegetables are slowly starting to disappear from the supermarkets and summer vegetables are not out yet.
Celery root is also one of the vegetables that is hard to find in these times. You'll find five celeries in a supermarket, and three of them is withered. There is a delicious recipe that you can prepare with two celery roots. If you like chickpeas, it's likely that you will also like this stew even if you don't like celery roots.
Enjoy the recipe...
