Ingredients

Grilled  Celeriac 346X318
  • 1 whole celeriac root
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Sprigs of thyme

Instructions

    A delicious alternative to French fries with barbecued dishes.

    In the kitchen:
    • Peel the celeriac and cut into 1 cm slices. Brush each slice with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
    • Rinse the thyme sprigs and remove the leaves from the sprigs.
    At the barbecue:
    • Prepare the barbecue for direct heat – approx. 200°C. If using a charcoal barbecue you need well over 1/3 of a chimney starter of lit Weber briquettes.
    • Grill the celeriac slices for approx. 2 min. on each side so they get sear marks. Remove from the barbecue and cut the celeriac slices into sticks about 2 cm wide. Place the sticks in a vegetable basket.
    • Rearrange the barbecue to indirect heat – approx. 180°C. If you are using a charcoal barbecue you will need to carefully remove briquettes with a tong, wearing a mitt. 
    • Place the vegetable basket on the grate at indirect heat and bake the celeriac sticks for approx. 25-30 min. Remember to close the lid of the barbecue.
    • Sprinkle the sticks with thyme leaves when there is about 5 min. of cooking time left.

    Tip: Use any of your favourite root vegetables and put them into an aluminium tray. Pour 2 tbsp runny honey over the root vegetables when there is 5 min. of cooking time left for a sweeter flavour.
