Parsley Parm Celeriac Fries with Rosemary Aioli

Celeriac Fries Ingredients:

  • 2 celery root (celeriac) bulbs, washed and cut into frie form  
  • ¼ cup avocado oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground peppercorns
  • 1 bulb garlic (yes that’s right, an entire bulb), crushed
  • ½ cup fresh parmesan cheese, grated
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped

Rosemary Aioli Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped super finely
  • 1 cup mayonnaise 
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450℉.
  2. For the Making of the Fries- Spread the celery root evenly on a couple baking sheets, lining them with parchment paper will help substantially with clean up. Drizzle with the oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Let them cook for 15-20 minutes then give them a flip and rotation. 
  3. Leave them in the oven until they are tender and browned (another 15-25 minutes). Then add the garlic (setting aside 2 Tbsp for the aioli), parm, and parsley. Toss them around and let them cook for another 5-8 minutes or until the cheese is sufficiently melted. Add more salt and pepper according to your taste buds’ preferences.
  4. For the Making of the Aioli- Mix the aioli ingredients together including the garlic you set aside from the fries. Add salt to taste.
  5. For the Enjoying of the Dish-  These will be happy to be an appy or stoked as a side dish. Hot out of the oven is great but, if you somehow have leftovers for the day after they’re made, you won’t be sad about it. 

Full Disclosure- You may have garlic breath for up to 3 days.
