What is Celeriac?

  • Celeriac is like a root vegetable, yet the root of a celery plant  – a bulbous veggie about the size of a grapefruit
  •  Celery Root is a celery variety grown for its underground tuber, rather than its green, celery-like stalks
  • Also known as Celery Root and Knob Celery
  • Celeriac may be roasted, stewed, or blanched, and may be mashed
  • Taste: celery-like flavour, with nutty overtones
  • The older it is, the weaker the celery flavor
  • Celeriac discolours quickly once peeled or chopped
  • Celeriac is available year round but is at its best from September to April
  • Choose a firm root that feels heavy for its size. Avoid those that are discolored
  • High in fiber, vitamins and minerals, low in calories and LOW IN CARBS!

Nutrition:

Celery root contains antioxidants that help combat inflammation, and it’s also a good source of vitamin B-complex, vitamin C and vitamin K. What’s more, it has high amounts of dietary fiber, which help promote gut and heart health. Also – relatively low in calories and carbohydrates.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds celery root about 1/2 of a very large one
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons cajun seasonings (salt free)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt more for sprinkling when done, to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
    Peel celery root with sharp small knife. Immediately cut into batonettes. Cut into 1/3" slabs, then cut into 1/3" x 4" lengths. Mostly, leave the size consistent.
  • In a 2 quart pot, add cut celery root with water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer, and simmer for 3 minutes until just softened.
    Drain and pour over cold water from the tap until they are cooled. Pat completely dry.
  • Add celery root batonettes to bowl to fit. Add oil and coat with your hands. Add cajun seasonings and 1/4 teaspoon sea salt - toss evenly with a wooden spoon.
  • Add batonettes to a rimmed baking sheet and separate them so they are not touching.
    Roast for 15 minutes until bottoms are golden, turn each piece over and roast until crispy, about 15 minutes more.

To Serve:

  • Taste for seasonings. Can add some more cajun seasonings to the warm fries, and sea salt to taste.
