Roast celeriac steaks with salsa verde

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.

    The salsa verde on roasted celeriac steaks – was to die for. Even though there was no capers, no basil / it was still great. Thanks Niki

    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!

  3. 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!
