Celeriac (Celery Root)

Celeriac (Celery Root)

The Basics

Celeriac is one of the homelier of vegetables, but it doesn't make it any less delicious. Celeriac, also known as celery root, is a type of celery that's grown for its root instead of its stalk. You can use celeriac in almost any recipe that calls for root vegetables.


Fill a large bowl with cold water and a few tablespoons of lemon juice. Peel the celery root and cut into equal sized chunks or slices. To prevent browning, place the cut up pieces into the bowl of acidulated water until you're ready to cook them. Celeriac can be boiled, roasted, or steamed, just like other root veggies.

Storage Tips

Store root veggies like celeriac in a plastic bag in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator.


Celeriac is a very good source of both vitamin C and phosphorous. Vitamin C is a natural antioxidant that helps control infections, improve immunity, and maintain healthy bones, teeth, and blood vessels. Phosphorous is an essential mineral that also plays a key role in bone health. (See more celeriac nutrition facts on
