In our CSA this week, we were given celeriac. Has anyone ever eaten/cooked this? Do you have any recipes that you could share?

I made celeriac soup -- it was good, but not post-to-ppk-about-it good.

I think I just searched for a veganizable recipe on the Food Network site.

Enjoy--I hope you have a better celeriac experience than I did! I was very happy to finally eat a vegetable that I hadn't tried before.

Yeah, I usually do a cream based soup. Although just steamed/boiled and pureed with EB and mimic creme is pretty good too. I have seen recipes for steaming, cooling and then serving with remoulade sauce but never tried that one. I also have just thrown it into a pot pie or stew like turnips or potatoes and it works out pretty well. That was the last veggie I got from my CSA that ever sent me running for the internet.

Roasted, either with potatoes or other root vege or by itself.

Peel, cube, and boil with potatoes and rutabaga...then mash with earth balance and soymilk. This is comfort food.

One thing I love to eat but never have made is myself is celeriac schnitzel: Slices of celeriac breaded and fried. It was a vegetarian staple in the cafeteria at my university. I need to make it.

I love celeriac shnitzel! Sometimes I add "fish seasoning" with some crumbled kelp or even nori and I have "celeriac fish fillet".

In France there's something called Céleri Rémoulade. I've never tried it, but it looks good. It's basically a mayo-based salad with julienned celeriac.

Here's a recipe that would be super easy to veganize.

I never got to try it, but a friend of mine swears by thinly slicing the celeriac, frying it, and then eating it with vegan mayo (whichever one you prefer). Apparently it's delicious.

I make celeriac oven fries. They're also good in stews, pot pies--almost anything you'd use a potato for, as long as you don't mind a slight celery flavor added to the dish.

I got one in my CSA last week, and then my boss gave me hers. Our bank has the CSA deliver right here...

Anyway, I gave one to my mother as she loves it for split pea soup. She just cuts it up in little pieces and adds it to the soup. According to her, split pea soup is not worthy of its name without celeriac.

On another note, since I went vegan, she has been making it without any ham or bacon and swears it's just as good as before.

In Germany, it's very common to use celeriac for a vegetable broth or soup base. Basicallly, it replaces the celery. I also like it in soup a lot.

This thread is awesome, reminds me to buy a head of celeriac.

Cook some brown rice in a decent veggie stock. Make a cheezy sauce, roast celeriac, potato, carrot, parsnip etc until done. Place veg on top of cooked rice and cover with cheezy sauce. Bake for 10-15 minutes and go crazy.

These all sound yummy and I am very happy that there were so many suggestions in this thread because I am apparently getting another one in this week's CSA. I will definitely be trying some of these recipes over the next week or two. Thanks!

I once took the white bean pie recipe in VCON/VB and substituted a decent sized head of celeriac for the aspargus. I used thyme as the herb instead of tarragon, and sliced apples to bake on top of the pie. It turned out dee-lightful.

I know it is late (but maybe for next time you get celeriac/celery root...) but I actually made a celery root soup for Thanksgiving. It was quite the hit. It is from Tal Ronnen's "Conscious Cook" book. It is a basic vegetable puree/creamy soup type. The "cream" in it is a blenderized thick cashew cream (super luscious-ness). The soup is garnished with diced green apple and drizzled with chive oil (I know it sounds a little "fussy" but really it isn't bad...actually, the trickiest part is getting the celery root peeled since they are knobby and uneven they are a little bit difficult to get peeled).

Even my non-veg family members who tend to be skeptical of "weird" food loved the soup (and didn't hide their surprise about that either :))
