Baked potato wedges are a favorite, whether dipped in sour cream, topped with melted cheese, or garnished with freshly chopped herbs. And celery root (celeriac) has the perfect texture to replace potatoes. It’s notably lighter and less dense than potatoes, but it carries a similar bite and hold, and tastes like a less-intense version of celery with a hint of parsley. With your fave toppings, you’ll never notice the difference.

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
