Baked Celery Fries
  • 1 larger celery root
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • vegetable brush
  • peeler
  • cutting board
  • knife
  • mixing bowl
  • larger bowl
  • paper towel
  • wooden spoon
  • baking sheet
  1. First of all, turn the oven to 180°C / 350°F – all the preparation will be done in a jiffy.
  2. Since the celery root is too bumpy, clean the root very thoroughly with vegetable brush under the running water, pat dry the celeriac using paper towel. To peel it properly, you need to cut the top and bottom of a root, as well as some bigger bumps with sharp knife. Then continue with a peeler, until you remove all skin and the little freckles under the celery skin.
  3. Fill one larger bowl with water and squeeze half of a lemon in it. Carefully cut the root into sticks and submerge them immediately into lemon water, so they will not turn brown, count to ten and then put them into a sieve to drain off water.
  4. Now take a mixing bowl and put a few tablespoons of olive oil in it. Add mustard, salt and pepper, stir it with spoon, put the celery stick in and toss until evenly coated with the oil and mustard mix.
  5. Arrange fries on a lightly oiled baking sheet in a single layer. Bake it for about 20 - 25 minutes, or until they are golden. Serve them right from the oven, with some nice salad and exotic dip.
