Vegan Christmas – Whole roasted celeriac with herbs, olive oil and sea salt

This is an old favourite that I have now every so often started to also make outside of Christmas (when it’s always been our version of the traditional Christmas ‘ham’). It is so versatile, and definitely a worthy main attraction of a meal, partnered perhaps with a yummy risotto, sautéed greens and a creamy cashew sauce, or with a lentil or mushroom stir-fry. Endless possibilities with this one! So simple to make too, as long as you have enough time for it to roast properly (around two hours).

 

Whole roasted celeriac with herbs, olive oil and sea salt
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 large celeriac root
  • 2 to 3 tbsp of herbs of your choice, roughly chopped, e.g. rosemary, thyme or sage.
  • A generous dollop of olive oil
  • A few generous pinches of sea salt
Instructions
  1. Turn the oven to 190°C/375°F/gas 5.
  2. Carefully wash the celeriac and place it on a double folded large piece of foil (enough to wrap around the entire root). Thoroughly coat it with the olive oil, the herbs and the salt before covering it completely in the foil (wrap tightly) and placing it in the oven, leaving it there for approximately two hours - until tender throughout.
  3. Slice it and serve with side vegetables, creamy sauces, a mushroom sauté or with a yummy risotto. Or like I do at Christmas, with hummus in a flat bread wrap!

  • Inspired by @thehungrywarrior ‘s post from a few weeks ago I fancied up my oatmeal this morning, baking them in the oven for 20 or so minutes with turmeric, cinnamon, chia seeds and almond milk.... I topped it off with roasted nuts, a little honey and plenty of pomegranate seeds. Definitely a new favorite! Thanks for the idea Shabnam. #planetplantbased #vegan #plantbased #vegetarisch #glutenfree #glutenfrei #thrivemags #hufftaste #organic #whofoods #meatfreemonday #vegetarian #foods #foodblog #vegansofig #veganrecipes #veganfoodshare #glutenfritt #bestofvegan #letscookvegan #thrivemags #goodfood #breakfast

  • My favorite leafy green lately is cavolo nero/black kale/Schwarzkohl because it makes the most delicious pasta sauce in a matter of minutes when combined with a little cream and a little garlic. Here it is coating our Planet Plant-Based Green Pea Tagliatelle and it is definitely a winning combo! #planetplantbased #beanpasta #bohnenpasta #bohnennudeln #plantbased #glutenfrei #vegetarisch #gesundessen #wholefoods #organic #bio #vegansofig #pastalover #bestofvegan #eatfortheplanet #meatfree. #lowcarb #lowcarbnudeln

  • It's the time of the year when I go all in refining my vegan xmas meatball recipe from last year. The 2017 version has a hint of rosemary and I promise they win over traditional meat ones any day of the week. #vegan #christmascooking #glutenfree #eatfortheplanet #planetplantbased #veganmeatballs #christmascooking #veganchristmas #feedfeedvegan #vegan #vegansofig #planetplantbased #bestofvegan #thrivemags #wholefoods #foods4thought #christmasfood
