Celeriac fries are a tasty low carb side dish and a great alternative to potato french fries.
Celeriac may not be the most attractive vegetable but it's one of the best low carb potato substitutes. Mashed, roasted or even raw it has a smooth nutty taste.
How to make celeriac fries
The outer skin may look like it will be a challenge to peel but if it is ripe the skin is not too bad to peel. A large sharp knife helps too! Once peeled the flesh is soft enough to cut into fries or chunks.
I have baked these keto fries in the oven but they are also great in the air fryer. Spray the air fryer basket before placing in the seasoned low carb fries and bake for about 15 minutes.
I have kept this recipe simple as a base for you to enjoy the celeriac and have a play with the seasoning of your choice. Other seasonings and herbs that you may want to try with these low carb fries are:
- Rosemary & Garlic
- Cajun seasoning
- Everything seasoning
- Parmesan (vegetarian)
I sliced my celeriac root fries quite thin, but try them chunky style too!
