Chilli and Garlic Celeriac recipe

Preparation Time: 20 minutes | Cooking Time: 50 minutes

Celeriac is cooked down with red onions and garlic cloves, along with a dash of white wine in this simple yet effective recipe. Serve with some spiced chicken wings and a dollop of natural yoghurt as a dip.


  • 1 celeriac
  • 2 red chillies
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 4 tbsp. oil
  • Splash of white wine or water


  1. Peel the celeriac and chop into small cubes. Thinly slice the garlic. Halve the chillies, remove the seeds with the back of a knife and thinly slice. Put the celeriac, chilli, garlic and oil into a large saucepan and heat gently so that the oil coats everything.

  2. Cover, and cook over the lowest heat on the smallest ring, for 40-50 minutes, stirring occasionally until the celeriac is soft. Add wine or water every now and then if the veggies catch. Serve warm straight from the pan.

Don't like spice? Make this dish fragrant instead of spicy by using ginger instead of chillies. Recipe serves 2-4.
