Simple Sautéed Celery Root

What is Celery Root (Celeriac) and What Do I Do With It? 

Celery root, also known as celeriac, is a versatile root vegetable used in stews, soups, salads, and as a substitute for potatoes in healthy mash, as it is low carb.




2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 large celery root (celeriac), peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes

2 cloves garlic, minced

½ cup water or broth

1 teaspoon chopped thyme

1 teaspoon chopped rosemary

½ teaspoon salt

Freshly ground pepper to taste

1 tablespoon chopped parsley, optional



  1. Sautee: Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add oil and swirl to combine. Add celery root and cook, stirring occasionally until the celery root is browned in spots, 5 to 6 minutes.
  2. Brown Garlic: Add garlic and cook, stirring until the garlic is fragrant and just starting to brown.
  3. Steam: Add water and immediately cover with the lid. Cook the celery root, covered, until tender, about 5 minutes.
  4. Finish with Herbs: Remove lid and sprinkle on thyme, rosemary salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often until the celery root is tender and the water is completely evaporated, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in parsley.
