These baked fries are a creative – and healthy- alternative to potato fries cooked in vegetable oil. And they taste just as good!
Celery root is a really interesting veggie for me, and a great source of healthy carbohydrates. It’s the root of the celery plant (think ants on a log or the green stuff that comes with your hot wings). It has a celery-ish taste that gets played down when you cook it.
You can find celery root in the produce section of some grocery stores. You can also find it at most farmer’s markets.
I use duck fat in the recipe, but you could easily trade this out for ghee or avocado oil for equally good results. If using a different fat for cooking, you may need to adjust the amount slightly to get a good coating on each of the fries before you pop them in the oven. Enjoy!
