How to cook celeriac

There are many ways to cook celeriac, here are a few popular methods:

  1. Boiling: Peel and chop the celeriac into bite-size pieces. Boil them in a pot of salted water for 8-12 minutes or until they are fork-tender. Drain and serve with butter or a sprinkle of herbs.

  2. Roasting: Peel and chop the celeriac into bite-size pieces. Toss with olive oil, salt, pepper and any desired herbs or spices. Roast in a preheated oven at 425°F (220°C) for 20-25 minutes or until tender and slightly caramelised.

  3. Mashing: Peel and chop the celeriac into bite-size pieces. Boil or steam them until tender, then mash them with butter, milk, and seasonings for a low-carb alternative to mashed potatoes.

  4. Puree: Peel and chop the celeriac into bite-size pieces. Boil or steam them until tender, then puree them with butter, milk, and seasonings for a creamy and healthy side dish.

  5. Gratin: Peel and slice the celeriac into thin pieces. Layer them with cheese and cream in a baking dish, then bake until golden brown and bubbly.

  6. Fritters: Peel and grate the celeriac, then mix with flour, eggs, and spices. Fry spoonfuls in hot oil until golden brown.

  7. Soup: Peel and chop the celeriac into bite-size pieces. Add to a pot of chicken or vegetable stock with other vegetables, such as onions and potatoes, and simmer until tender. Then blend the mixture until smooth.

  8. Celeriac Remoulade: Peel and grate the celeriac, then mix it with a mayonnaise-based dressing, capers, and herbs.

Note: Always peel celeriac well and remove any brown spots before using it, as the skin is tough and the brown spots can make it taste bitter. Also cooking times may vary depending on the size and thickness of the celeriac. Always check for doneness by piercing it with a fork, it should be tender but still have a bit of bite.
