These Celeriac Fries are a great alternative to sweet potato fries – they’re sweet, nutty and crispy!
If you’re not sure what celeriac is, it’s the root of a celery plant. It’s large and round like a cabbage, but the surface is knobbly and gnarly like lots of root vegetables.
Celeriac may not look very appetising, but it’s actually delicious and so versatile. You can make mash with it, blend it into a soup, or use it to make a gratin. I’ve also discovered it’s delicious chopped into ‘fries’ and roasted!
These Celeriac Fries look very similar to normal potato fries, but have a nutty and slightly sweet flavour. They’re not floury at all – I would say their texture is more similar to that of roasted carrots or parsnips.
I hope you’ll give these Celeriac Fries a try! They make such a yummy and healthy side dish or snack. They taste great on their own, but even better with a dipping sauce.

Helpful tools to make these Celeriac Fries:
- 1 celeriac
- 2 tablespoons olive oil (or sub coconut or rapeseed oil)
- Salt + pepper, to taste
- Optional: Few sprigs rosemary
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit)
- Peel the celeriac (slice off the top and bottom and trim off the sides to remove the skin)
- Cut into thick chips (I used a crinkle-cut knife but any knife will do!)
- Add to a saucepan with enough water to cover and a pinch of salt, and boil for 10-15 minutes, to soften slightly
- Once the celeriac is done, drain away the water and add oil, salt + pepper and rosemary to the saucepan and mix well
- Spread out over a large baking tray lined with baking paper and bake in oven for 35-45 minutes, until soft, golden brown and shrunken by half
