Our family loves oven roasted vegetables and one day DH ask if I could make fries for lunch, not having any potatoes in the house I cut a celery root into fries, seasoned and roast. We really enjoy these even if they are not a true French fry.
- Pre heat oven to 425.
- Clean, peel and cut celery root into fry size (approximately 1/4" x 1/4" x 2").
- In a large bowl mix olive oil and Cajun seasoning; add celery root and toss till well coated.
- Bake 30 to 40 minutes flipping ever 10 to 15 minutes to prevent burning on the bottom and promote even cooking.
- Enjoy while hot.
Loved this recipe...a terrific low-carb alternative to oven fries!
I've never had celery root, have wandered by it in the produce aisle looking longingly at it...really wanted to try it. So I took the leap.....so glad I did! I'd rather have these than fries any day! The celery root has a bit of spice, and the addition of the cajun seasoning puts this over the top! I needed no ketchup or sauce of any kind. These fries stand on their own! Thanks Deb for introducing me to a veggie I've wanted to try for a while! Looking forward to finding other uses for this wonderful vegetable! Made for PRMR tag.
