Baked celeriac patties with coriander and mint

Baked celeriac patties with coriander and mint


1 medium-sized celeriac
6-8 tablespoons corn flour
whole sea salt, to taste
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon dried mint leaves, finely crushed
1 teaspoon powdered coriander seeds

Makes 12-15 patties.


Peel the celeriac, cut it into even-sized chunks and put them in a steamer placed over a saucepan filled with water (4 cups should be enough), sprinkle with some salt, put a lid on and steam until tender (it should take 25-30 minutes). You can tell if it’s ready by piercing it with a fork. In the meantime, preheat the oven to 200° C. Remove the celeriac from the steamer, pat dry with a paper towel, and mash with a potato masher or fork (I wouldn’t use an electric beater). Let cool a bit, then add the flour, olive oil, salt to taste, mint and coriander. Mix well. Form the celeriac into patties of 3-4 cm diameter, about 1-1 ½ cm thick, keeping your hands wet all the time to prevent sticking, and place them in the oven on a sheet of lightly oiled parchment paper. Bake for about 30-40 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp on both sides.

Thoughts, tips, ideas

Simple and totally yummy, these patties are a great alternative to traditional potato patties. They’re nice if eaten warm with a pretty salad on the side but they also work beautifully as appetizers or finger foods. Just make sure to eat them right away as they will get soggy if left to sit too long.

I love celeriac. This looks delicious. It’s too bad celeriac season is almost at its end for me… I was at the grocery store on the weekend, and all they had left was a sad little celeriac squeezed in between the beets and parsnips.

I never see celareic in stores here. And if it weren’t for this idea, I wouldn’t know what to do with it if I did find some. But now I’ll be on the lookout because these look great!
