Celeriac Yellow Curry with Chickpeas

Celeriac is one more of those weird veggies that we often ignore but hides tons of flavour possibilities. 

Curry is just the ultimate comfort food for rainy days!

Our first Celeriac recipe could not be something else then a mild, warming thai curry! This recipe is so easy and delicious you will not have any excuse no to try! 

This is a meal prep friendly recipe! 

Everything can be made in advance, frozen or kept in the fridge! I even think it gets only better the next day! I just love curries in lunchboxes, it’s a great take away lunch!
