This is from Goes great with roast pork loin! You can put this dish in the lower third of your oven and roast a pork loin at the same time!!

I like the carmelized flavor that roasting gives the celery root!! It was perfectly cooked with this time and golden brown. Celery root (celeriac) is kind of hard to peel, you really need to do it with a knife and if you leave any of the outer brown part in the roasting, it is tough and woody if you get some in your mouth so be sure and peel it well of the brown outer skin. I found that the salt was really absorbed in roasting and it needed a little dusting of salt upon plating. This is a very rich flavor for a vegetable side. I think I will roast fewer next time within another roasted vegetable dish because you can't eat a lot of just celery root but it does taste good!!! Served this with roast chicken and new potatoes. Thanks for posting!!
