Simple Ottolenghi celeriac recipes

by Katie Russell

published on 29 June 2023

Celeriac is one of those versatile vegetables that you can cook any which way. It may be the root of a celery plant, but it can be transformed into a succulent, almost meat-like, Sunday roast substitute. Alternatively, you can channel your inner MasterChef contestant and whip up a celeriac purée for a fun alternative to hummus. If you’re looking for some inspiration for this vegetable, which is available to buy all year round, the following are the best celeriac recipes.
