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.

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