Transform celery root into “vegan turkey” this Thanksgiving

Mass Appeal

Cathie Cappa, owner of Auntie Cathie’s Kitchen, taught us how to turn celeriac into a “vegan turkey” for Thanksgiving.


  • 1 celeriac (celery root)
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Potatoes
  • Apples


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Take your celeriac and trim off any tendril roots, fuzzy stuff, or crevices where soil might be trapped. Scrub it well.
  2. Rub olive oil all over the celeriac, and sprinkle it with sea salt. Place it in a small casserole dish (lightly oiled, or lined with parchment paper) and roast for about 2 hours, or until soft when pierced with a paring knife. Slice into wedges, and drizzle with more olive oil, some of your favorite sea salt (flaky or smoked is nice!) and freshly ground pepper.
