If there were an award for the ugliest and most alien-looking vegetable, then celeriac would be way up there. The poor humble root vegetable is so so underrated. In fact, it is so versatile it can be roasted, mashed, or grilled and, when cooked, develops a lovely sweetness. It tastes similar to a turnip but has a celery-like freshness and goes beautifully in this salad.
Please don’t waste the insides. I made a snack by slicing it up (unevenly) and roasting it with olive oil, garlic and onion granules, salt, and pepper until crisp. 😋
