Low Carb French Fries


Today I made low carb french fries. It was so yummy and similar to french fries that the only difference I noticed is that the celery root is a little more chewy with a snappy taste to it. The celery root is very low in carbs and an excellent substitute for potatoes. It is a little pricier and the only place I could find it was at the Whole Foods Store.  This really curbs my craving for french fries. I hope you enjoy.

Nutritional Values for Celery Root:

According to information on about.com here are the stats:

1 cup raw (100 grams) – 7 grams of carbohydrate plus 2 grams fiber

Here is what the vegetable looks like (very unattractive, I know)

Ingredients

8 oz celery root

1 tablespoon Original Mrs Dash

1 Tablespoon of Olive oil

Method:

Peel wash and slice the celery root into french fries.

In a dish pour the olive oil and Mrs dash over the celery root and mix in.

Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve with sugar free ketchup

    Hi Sarah,
    The celery root fries will not get crunchy but it will taste a lot like fries. My weight loss is great, I am down 43lbs now : )

    Hi Jay

    I stumbled across your website by accident and am now a big fan! I have been a low carber for about twelve months but your recipes have inspired me and I can now have a more varied diet! Thank you, thank you!

    I made these fries but they weren’t crunchy. Could it have been because the celery root was too old?

    Ps how is your weight loss progress going?
