Celeriac Recipes

This odd-looking vegetable has a great flavor inside of the bumpy exterior.  This is also called celery root and it is actually a type of celery.  It is usually grown to the size of a large potato.  Unlike the potato, it is only 5% starch by weight.  It is mostly composed of water.  There is potassium, vitamin C and vitamin B.  It can be eaten raw or cooked.  This vegetable can be substituted for other root vegetables such as potato or carrot.

Celeriac can be stored in the refrigerator for several months if it is kept dry.

Send me any of your favorite ways to each this vegetable.

Turkish Celeriac Dish

Ilkes Kitchen Blog

This dish has potatoes and carrots with the celeriac.  It would be a great side dish.  The recommendation is to serve it cold so I look forward to making it.

Curried Celeriac Soup

Serious Eats

Here is a curried soup recipe from the Serious Eats website.  It is a site that I have followed for a few years for the great recipes.  They only send a few emails per month so it is easy to scan the recipe links.  One reader suggested adding potatoes to make the texture even more silky.

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1-2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 pounds celery root, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 6 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 cup milk, half and half, or cream, or to taste
  • 1/4 cup cilantro or parsley for garnish
