 Celeriac (aka celery root) is a type of root vegetable. Most of you are probably familiar with the green part of the plant - the stalk.

Celery root is higher in carbs than the stalk but it's also delicious. It's a great low-carb alternative to potato-based recipes such as mashed potatoes, hash browns or potato chips. It's important to note that it's not "zero-carb" as no root vegetable is (only with the exception of parsley root, which has very low net carbs).

When I cook with celery root, I usually use it with other low-carb vegetables such as cauliflower, turnip or rutabaga (aka swede) to make sure I don't end up with too many carbs. Celeriac chips are delicious, however, together with Mixed Vegetable Chips, I wouldn't recommend these for a very low-carb diet (induction phase).

Ingredients (makes 4 servings)

  • 1 large celery root (400 g/ 14.1 oz)
  • 2 tbsp fresh orange juice (30 m)
  • 1 tbsp orange peel (finely grated fresh or dried)
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp melted ghee or butter (melted) or any oil suitable for cooking
  • sea salt to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 150 °C/ 300 °F (fan assisted), or 170 °C/ 340 °F (conventional). Peel the celery root and slice thinly on a mandolin. If you are using a knife, make sure the slices are no more than 1/8 inch (1/4 cm) thin.

  2. In a bowl, mix warmed ghee, paprika, orange juice and orange peel. Add the celery root and mix well to allow the oil everywhere.

  3. Place the celery root on a non stick baking tray or a baking tray lined with a baking paper, season with salt and place in the oven. Cook for about 30-40 minutes or until golden brown. Check the chips at least every 10 minutes and remove any that seem cooked before they get burned. Cooking time depends on the thickness of the slices and also on the oven.

  4. Remove from the oven and let the chips cool down before you remove them from the baking tray. Eat them soon, as they may get soggy if you leave them for too long.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Hi,
I have made these twice now.  The first time they were wonderful.  However, the second time they were very woody and fibrous.  Do you have a tip on picking out a 'good' celery root?
Thanks for any info,

Hi, I don't have any tips on picking the "right" celeriac. However, frying in ghee or coconut oil may help - it always makes any vegetable chips crispy. Also, try dehydrator or oven on very low. Hope this helps 😊
