These Celeriac Fries are perfect if you want to make something healthier than regular chips, but you’re getting a little bored of sweet potato fries.
If you’re not sure what celeriac is, it’s the root of a celery plant. It may not look very appetising, but it’s actually delicious in a wide variety of dishes, for example mashed or blended into a soup. But I think it only really reaches its full potential when roasted!
They look very similar to normal potato chips, but actually have a nutty and slightly sweet flavour and aren’t floury in texture.
If you try out this recipe or anything else from my blog, I’d love for you to take a photo and tag it #rhiansrecipes on Instagram! It would really make my day to see what you come up with!
