I love chips and could eat them all day long but as I am trying to keep the weight off, I need to look for healthier alternatives to fulfill my cravings… so, you can imagine my delight when I turned on the TV and found someone raving on about celeriac chips! They are lower in GI than potatoes, contain less fat and are damn tasty!

The chips are fairly simple to prepare, once you have tackled the tough task of cutting and peeling the celeriac that is. I like to sprinkle curry powder, cayenne pepper and sumac to give a spicy tang to the crispy chips. And tonight, I am going to enjoy it with a side of unhealthy cheeseburger….hey, everyone deserves a cheat day, right?

Ingredients – serves 3 to 4

  • 1 large celeriac
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp sumac
  • oil (enough to coat the┬áceleriac chips)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Method

  1. Preheat oven 200C.
  2. Peel and cut celeriac into long strips (like you would with chips).
  3. Line a baking tray and place celeriac onto the tray. Coat with oil and spices.
  4. Roast for 40-45 minutes, or until brown and crispy.

NB: Some people like to parboil the celeriac before roasting in the oven, but I like to save on the washing up and find the chips are crispier my way.

    Always wanted to know an alternative idea for celeriac.Must try it with cassava too – great fried so baked with spices should work too.

      Thank you Sally. I love the chilli and lemon cassava crisps you find in the shops and imagine these two flavours, with a bit of garlic, would work lovely with your cassava chips / wedges. I will have to try it too.
