Celery Root Cooked in Orange Juice

(Portakall─▒ Kereviz)

Celery Root Cooked in Orange Juice
1 large celery root, peeled, sliced
Enough water with half of lemon juice to cover the vegetables

4-5 green onions, cut in 4 or 5 pieces
~20 ml extra virgin olive oil (half for cooking, half for after cooking)
Juice from one orange
4-5 slices of orange
2-3 tbsp water with a few drops of lemon (taken from the lemon water to soak the vegetables)

Soak the celery slices into a cup of water with a few drops of lemon juice to prevent them from getting dark for about 5 minutes.

Remove and place in a shallow pot. Arrange the orange slices and green onions over the tops. Add the orange juice, water with lemon juice and salt. Cover and cook until the celery is tender at low heat.

Let it cool down in the pot. Then, place on a serving dish. Pour the rest of the olive oil. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
