Celery root (celeriac) is a large, knobby, brown vegetable with a unique flavor, kind of like a mix between celery and parsley.

It’s keto-friendly, full of antioxidants and vitamins B, C, and K, and has a high amount of dietary fiber.

So, why not try these celery root recipes? You’ve got nothing to lose!

Easy Roasted Celery Root and More!

1. Simple Sautéed Celery Root

This simple sautéed celery root side dish goes with just about anything. And it’s a terrific first recipe to try if you’ve never cooked with celeriac before.

All you need is one pan and a few ingredients. Then, sauté cubed celery root in a little butter until browned.

Pretty easy, huh?

It’ll caramelize slightly, bringing out that lovely, nutty taste. One bite, and you won’t be able to stop eating these root veggies!

Season them with a bit of garlic, and an aromatic blend of rosemary, thyme, and parsley for the perfect last touch.

2. Celery Root Mash

Are you trying to cut down on carbs? Swap out your usual mashed potatoes with creamy and delicious celery root!

Boil ’em, mash ’em (just don’t stick ’em in a stew!), and season with a touch of salt. Pretty soon, they’ll be smooth and good to go.  

Serve this mash with chicken, grilled steaks, or some baked salmon for the perfect dinner.

3. Roasted Celery Root (Easy Roasted Celeriac)

As promised, here’s a super simple roasted celery root recipe you’ll crave again and again.

It’s a low-carb, keto alternative to potatoes that couldn’t be easier to make.

Just chop it into chunks, toss with oil and herbs, then roast at 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200°C) until golden and lightly crisp.

With its mild flavor and turnip-like texture, this pairs well with everything.

4. Celery Root Salad

If you’re looking for a refreshing and healthy side, this celery root salad has you covered.

Also known as celery remoulade, it’s chock full of celeriac and green apples. Then, it’s all smothered in a mayonnaise and Dijon dressing.

Needless to say, it’s a little more exciting than a bowl of plain leaves! 

This root vegetable salad pairs beautifully with seafood dishes. But it’s so good, you might want to gobble it up on its own.

5. Celery Root and White Bean Soup

Beat the cold with a big bowl of this celery root and white bean soup.

This pureed bowl of yum really allows the celeriac to shine, and it’ll defeat those winter blues in a snap! 

Featuring celery root, parsnips, onions, and white beans, it’s sweet and savory. Plus, half a cup of heavy cream makes each bowl oh-so-creamy. 

As much as I enjoy smooth soups, I love this with some Parmesan, bacon, garlic croutons, and scallions on top.

But there are plenty of ways you can enjoy it. For example, drizzle it with herb oil or even top it with roasted vegetables. Delish!

6. Celeriac Puree (Celery Root Puree)

On the hunt for a new side dish? This celery root puree is garlicky, creamy, and perfect for any Sunday supper.

If you’re craving something a little different from potatoes, this recipe is for you.

The combination of nutty celeriac, heavy cream, and pungent garlic packs a punch!

Finish it with a few dabs of butter for something decadent. Then, sprinkle over chopped chives and serve.

This mash pairs beautifully with a filet of oven-baked cod and some roasted veggies.

7. Celery Root Hummus

Dips are some of the best appetizers for sharing. And this celery root hummus is no exception!

And all you have to do is swap out the chickpeas for celery root for a subtle and savory flavor. 

Even if you’ve never cooked with it before, this recipe with celery root is super straightforward.

The hardest part is chopping up the root veggie itself. It takes a little effort, but it’s so worth it.

Drizzle the finished hummus with a little olive oil before serving.

For something extra special, try lemon-infused olive oil. It pairs beautifully with the celery root flavor.

Grab the pita bread and dig in. Yum!

8. Celeriac Chips (Celery Root Fries)

Who knew fries could count towards your five a day?

These celery root fries, or chips (as they call them across the pond), are a great alternative to high-carb potato fries.

Not only are they delicious, but they’re also super adaptable.

You can season them any way you like. Though this recipe keeps things simple with paprika, salt, and pepper.

And the best part is, there’s no frying required! Instead, simply place the fry-shaped celeriac into a baking dish and roast them for 40 minutes.


9. Celery Root Gratin

If you love a classic, cheesy gratin, you’ll quickly become obsessed with this celery root gratin.

Switch out some of the potatoes for slices of celery root, and it’s suddenly healthy (ish).

This decadent dish gives celery root a real makeover. It’s transformed from ugly root veggie to a luxurious treat in minutes.

Serve this creamy, dreamy dish with grilled meats and fresh side salads.

It always goes down a treat with everybody who tries it. You definitely won’t have leftovers!

10. Celeriac Parsnip Soup

Are you feeling the winter chill? Warm up with this celeriac and parsnip soup. The blend of nutty celeriac and subtly sweet parsnips is *chef’s kiss*

The vegetables are roasted until caramelized to bring out their unique flavors. Then, everything’s blended until silky smooth. 

Serve with a drizzle of garlicky butter, and mop up every last drop with a crispy baguette. Wow!
