Author Notes: In Mediterranean countries, we love vegetables cooked in olive oil! We usually eat them cold or at room temperature, but they also taste good when they are eaten warm. Interestingly celery roots are not very common in the USA, where celery can be found almost in every recipe, soup, or salad. This celery root recipe is an adaptation from my mother's recipe. She is know to make everyone eat celery roots, even the ones that swear that they will not even taste it!TahinPekmez
