Salt Crusted Celeriac recipe

Preparation Time: 20 minutes | Cooking Time: 3 hours

Celeriac is crusted in a flour, salt and egg white mixture and then baked for three hours in this unusual yet sumptuous recipe.


  • 1 celeriac
  • 225g plain flour
  • 300g salt
  • 5 egg whites
  • 150ml water


  1. Preheat oven to 160C and trim celeriac.

  2. Combine flour, salt, egg whites and water in a bowl until it forms a paste. Use a little of the mix to create a base for the celeriac then liberally cover it with the rest of the mix. The celeriac should be completely covered with no gaps or holes.

  3. Bake for 3 hours. Take out of the oven, then carefully remove the celeriac from the oven. Carefully slice the top off, then use a spoon to scoop the celeriac out to serve.

Recipe serves around 2-3. Make it a little richer by stirring some butter through the cooked veg.
