This recipe was inspired by The Ultimate Book of Barbecue, which I thoroughly recommend. I mentioned the book before when I tried cooking a Whole Grilled Chicken – which was amazing! I’ve given a low carb spin to the creamed spinach recipe from this book – mainly because it featured celeriac and bacon – and the combination sounded amazing!
I love celeriac (or celery root, if you prefer), but for some reason I always forget to cook it. 1 cup (156g) of celeriac contains about 11.2g net carbs – which makes it mid range as low carb veggies go. But pair it with spinach – and it’s low carb side dish perfection!
Peel the celeriac and chop it into cubes. Heat some olive oil in a large saucepan and add the celeriac, together with some garlic paste and chopped cooked bacon (if you don’t have it already cooked, you could just add it first, then the celeriac and garlic afterwards).
Continue to cook until the celeriac is starting to soften. Add in heavy cream and a LOT of baby spinach. I usually have to add the spinach in batches, waiting for it to wilt down before adding more. When all the spinach is in the pan, continue to cook until the cream has reduced by about half. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper as necessary.
