Fries: Almost the real deal.

5 Mar

Okay so we all know that alternative french fries tend to leave the average french fry lover begging for real french fries ( Preferably Mc’Donalds in my case). Anyways, as a gal that has experimented with sweet potato, butternut squash, parsnip and carrots…behold the celery root! ImageNo, it isn’t the prettiest vegetable on the shelf but I swear you’ll be coming back for more. Now to the procedure!

Step 1: Turn oven to 400F. Grab a baking sheet and place Tinfoil on the bottom. Slice the end pieces off the celery root and then scrape to remove all skin. This can get a bit tricky so watch yo fingers!

Step 2: Dice into Fry like shapes. Disclaimer : Some websites suggest that half of a celery root is one serving but do NOT kid yourself. You will cry if you don’t make the other half.


Step 3: Drizzle with olive oil/salt /curry powder. I would give you my measurements but let your creativity abound! The curry powder is definitely worth a whirl and I haven’t switched it up yet but you know your tastebuds! No need to be shy…get your hands in there! Make sure that every fry is coated and then place in the oven for 30-40 minutes depending on your ovens mood.

Step 4: Take out of Oven and sprinkle again with salt/spices/ Ketchup if you must. The photo depicts the last remainder of fries I had. As a new blogger I must be more patient and take a photo BEFORE inhaling!Image

    I tired these once but with parsnips that were (surprisingly!) coated in peanut butter.
    I must say these look like a step up 🙂
