Moroccan-Spiced Baby Carrots
Dijon, Thyme, and Pine Nut Broccoli
Celery Root-Arugula Salad
It's a good idea to take a sharp knife to the gnarly celery root (also called celeriac), and cut it as finely as possible. If you have a mandoline, use it to make quick, even matchstick pieces. Although all celery root will be misshapen and scruffy looking, don't buy roots that are shriveled or that give to the touch.
