One of my favorite things about using my vegetable spiralizer is trying new veggie combinations. I have had soups with celery root A.K.A  Celeriac but had never cooked with it myself. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. This rather unattractive veggie is lower in carbs than potatoes and has a nice subtle delicious nutty flavor. In this recipe I used beautiful shrimp cooked in garlic, and dill on a bed of yellow squash and celery root noodles. This meal is simple, light, and really tasty. The textures of these two veggies when sliced with blade #3 creates soft ribbons of veggie noodles that make the perfect nest for this savory shrimp recipe.

Yield: 2 serving(s)


  • 4 yellow squash peeled
  • 1 celeriac root (celery root) peeled

  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ cup water
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 lb peeled devined shrimp with tails removed

Delishhhh! I entered a few key ingredients in my browser & this simple, easy recipe 😋 came up. I followed it to the T, except I replaced salsa sauce for 10 tomatoes. I also added leftover tortellini pasta as the bedrock. thx for an easy, enjoyable savory late nite meal.
