We’ve been gobbling up celery root, aka celeriac, all winter long. The knobby, hairy brown roots may not look like much on your grocery store shelf, but inside a crisp, tasty white flesh awaits you.

Enjoying every bite of that subtle celery-like flavor is super easy too, because it can be prepared in different ways! Raw, roasted, boiled, mashed, pureed, or fried, there’s no wrong way to eat it.

All the recipes in this collection celebrate the versatility of this tasty veggie in its many potential forms. Think of it as your new low-carb potato substitute!

How to Choose a Perfect Celery Root

If you’re not familiar with celeriac, you might wonder how to pick that perfect one. Here are some key things to look for when you’re out shopping.  

  • A good size – Avoid the tiny ones that won’t yield much and the monster ones which will taste watery. Aim for 1 -1.5 pounds for the ideal size.
  • Heavy and firm – Select those that feel heavy for their size and are firm, without any soft or squishy spots.
  • Check the leaves – some grocers will have already removed these. But if the stalks and leaves are still attached, look for vibrant, healthy green as a great indicator of fresh celeriac. You can even take them off at home and add them to stock!

With these tips in hand, picking quality ones will be easy. They keep in the fridge for up to two weeks, giving you plenty of time to test out these tasty celery root recipes. I hope you find several to love!
