Healthy Celeriac Chips with Dip

Who in the world knows what celeriac is?? I certainly did not, so when this monstrous-looking root turned up in my weekly Abel & Cole box, I had absolutely no idea what to do with it.

Should I mash it, boil it, soup it, fry it? So I took to my favourite source of inspiration – Pinterest.

Once I knew making chips was an option, and healthy chips at that, there was no going back. I mean, it’s impossible to go wrong with chips isn’t it? I don’t think I have ever met another human being who dared to utter out loud that they did not like chips. That would result in immediate segregation from all mankind!

Ok so maybe saying that is a bit too much. But still! It’s chips!

Unfortunately they’re not so kind on the waistline (or the heart), so I do try and keep my fried chips to a minimum. Luckily, I have a deep love for alternatives, and this celeriac one is no exception. No frying on my watch, no sir!

To make a generous bowl of chips, you will need:

  • 1 head celeriac
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2-3 tbsp of nutritional yeast
  • Handful of chopped rosemary and thyme
  • Sprinkle of salt & pepper

Pre-heat oven to 210C. Peel and cut your celeriac into chunky fat chips and boil them in salt water for 2-3 minutes. Drain and toss them in the pan itself with the olive oil, yeast, and herbs. Make sure all pieces are evenly coated. Spread the chips on a baking sheet, making sure they’re not too crowded. Bake for 20 minutes, flip, then bake for another 20 – but keep an eye on them to make sure they’re not burning!

Now it’s time to make the dip!

I’m definitely not a ketchup girl, but will have honey mustard anytime!

  • 1/4 cup mustard (Dijon, English, or wholegrain all work)
  • Splash of balsamic vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • Sprinkle of sea salt
  • Optional – tbsp plain or Greek yogurt for the extra creaminess.

Simply add all the ingredients in a ramekin, mix, and dip! So simple and yet so yummy.

So there you go, some healthy chips to start the week well and shake off those last traces of the weekend’s hangover.

What did you guys get up to?

I went to a play on Saturday – It wasn’t bad, but I just wouldn’t really recommend. Not too much of a plot, but the woman had a beautiful singing voice. I definitely need to go to the theater more often though.

  • These look so good! What kind of flavour does celeriac have? Is it the sort of vegetable whose flavour is the main contender or is it kind of like potatoes where you add the salt and rosemary for that?

    • It’s got a sort of nutty-celery-like flavour. It does have it’s own light flavour, but I would still add herbs and spices to it every time. X

  • I love celeriac! It tastes like Parsnips which are my ultimate favourite vegetable! This is such a good idea. Celeriac is always so cheap too as no one ever buys it! Yummy recipe!

    Oooh yum I’m going to try these, I’ve become addicted to making kale chips so these seem like another obvious choice. Also you order the Abel & Co boxes I’m in two minds whether to or not, do you think it’s worth it and do you use all the veg you order?

    Ummm yum! Anything that has the words HEALTHY & CHIPS has automatically won me over. Is it bad that I don’t think I’ve ever eaten celeriac?! Beautiful photos too! Look like some delicious, thick wedge cut chips!

    • This was the first time I’d ever tried them as well! Didn’t even know what they were before. They do taste great though, even if it doesn’t look it before you start peeling & chopping the root. X

  • Exactly! It’s the underdog of roots. I hadn’t even tried it before until it was thrust upon me! Now I’m converted. X

  • I love my Abel & Cole. I was in doubt if I should sign up at first, but now I look forward to those deliveries! I use everything I buy, and if I see it’s not going to get used soon enough, I freeze it! I hate waste, so I’m always planning to make sure nothing is wasted. Plus they’re a lovely company – since Matt wrote down that I recommended him to join, we both got freebies! X

  • I always love celeriac in coleslaw; in fact I’ve never even thought of making anything else with it, but these look absolutely delicious! Definitely bookmarking for next time I get my hands on a celeriac 🙂 great post, and beautiful photography!

    I really like this idea! Will have to give it a go when I get home and hit the detox!

  • I adore baking “chips” of all kinds at home! Great idea to use the celeriac. I’ve had it pureed but never roasted. Fun suggestion!

    • Same! Sweet potato are an all-time favourite as well. I haven’t tried it pureed, but it must be delicious! X

    Haha, I read the title of this and had to go and google what celeriac is… so I was so glad when I read the opening sentence and realised I wasn’t just really slow on the uptake! xx

    • Nope, you’re definitely not alone in that! X

  • It’s true, no one I know would ever turn down chips…of any kind!

    • They’d have to be crazy. X

  • Georgina Kent

    These look really tasty, I might have to give these a try 🙂

  • I have seen celeriac but never had any idea what to do with it – I am going to have to try this out as the chips look delish!

    Meghan xo

  • YES taffy – you’ve created a winner once again! We used to always have the same conundrum with the celeriac in our able n cole box….can’t remember what Mumma Q did with it in the end!!
