Celeriac–I absolutely love its delicious peppery flavour. But I think it’s so often overlooked, which seems a shame.

Have you tried cutting it into steaks and roasting? Like many vegetables, the flavour is much enhanced as is the texture. Here I’ve topped it with a zingy salsa verde which works really well with the pepperiness.

I think this makes a really great alternative to the more classic cauliflower steaks, and you can use them in much the same way.

Some more ideas!

Top with garlicky mushrooms
Serve with my lentil bolognese–yum.

I hope you enjoy, love Niki xxx

    Thanks so much for this great recipe — such an elegant, yet simple dish. I served it on a bed of cauliflower and white bean purée. Will definitely be making this again!

  2. Any suggestions for cooking the Celeriac on a Bbq? It looks like this would make the ideal easy vegan alternative.

    I have made this several times. The family absolutely loved it – not the small grandchildren but adults could not wait for the next time!
