Rooting for Risotto

Celeriac Lifestyle

Waitrose is the first supermarket to introduce celeriac rice, taking the trend for carb alternatives to the next level. Available from 30th August, the Waitrose Celeriac Rice (£1.75/300g) is raw celeriac, handily chopped into tiny rice-sized pieces for use in home cooking. Ideal as a base for a scratch-cooked risotto or simply microwaving to serve with a curry, this versatile veg holds its own structurally, just like the grain. 

Tom Moore, Waitrose vegetable buyer says: 'We know our customers love an alternative to traditional carbs, particularly when they're made entirely of fresh vegetables or are a tad unusual. Celeriac rice adds a deliciously subtle nutty flavour to a dish and keeps its shape beautifully during cooking. We hope fans of the vegetable will love this new way of enjoying celeriac, which would be tricky and time-consuming to do at home.'
