WTF, Celeriac!

Celeriac.  Many times, I passed this goofy-looking root in the grocery store and wondered what its deal was.  Now curiosity may have killed the cat, but it hasn't killed me yet, so I brought one home with me. 

Unsurprisingly, these guys taste rather like celery.   I read they are good roasted and pureed as a soup.  I'm sure that's delightful, but as soon as I saw the word roasted, I thought veggie chips were in order.  So I took that celeriac and I peeled it and I chopped it and I tossed it in olive oil and I roasted it in the oven at 400°F/200°C for about 20 minutes, until it was all tender-like.  Then I served it sprinkled with sea salt.  It was delicious! 


  1. what a good idea to make celeriac chips! I want to try this! I've only ever had it in soups. Also, aren't they hilariously weird and sci-fi looking?

  2. Ha! Totally weird and sci-fi looking!!
