Baked Carrot and Celeraic Chips

You may have noticed by now that I’m a big fan of baking veggies like potato chips. Why is that so you ask?

Well here are some answers:

  1. Because they taste amazingly good!
  2. They can be more nutritious than potato chips (no vegetable oils).
  3. So easy and cheap to make (depending on veggie).
  4. Simple to prepare.
  5. Gives you another way to eat your veggies.
  6. Kids will love them.
  7. Who doesn’t love crunchy baked veggies?
  8. These chips become sweeter when baked.

For those who haven’t had Celeriac, it is a root vegetable (I’ve been told it is the root of celery). It had a milder flavour and a firmer texture than celery and it tastes great as a veggie chip! Carrot tastes equally nice roasted as a chip too, it becomes sweeter and is really delicious. If you can go  for organic carrots (then you won’t have to remove the peel).

Here are some of my other veggie chip recipes:

Carrot and Celeraic Chips

Time: 20-30 minutes

Serves: 2-3


  • 2 carrots
  • ½ celeriac
  • olive oil or coconut oil
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Cut your carrots and celeriac up into chip-sized pieces (I used a mandolin).
  2. Add them to a oven-proof bowl and pour the oil over to coat. Add the salt and pepper.
  3. Bake in the oven at 180 degrees C, till they are crunchy (around 20 minutes- or a shorter time for a softer chip).

Cooks Notes:

  • When you bake them-it’s best to spread them out as much as possible so they don’t stick to other chips.
  • Also, You may want to turn them over during cooking so they can crisp up evenly.
  • Try adding some to a salad- they would make a great crunchy addition (think a ‘vegetarian’ alternative to bacon).

Eat warm or devour later cold.

I thought the carrot chips are great, I have made some that was just sliced and deep fat fried and then add some seasoning salt to them, they are good.

Ok so I’m not going to lie, I had never heard of Celeriac before. Is that an Australian thing? I don’t think I could get my hands on that, do you have any ideas for an alternative that would be good with the carrots? This looks really good!


Michelle July 17, 2010 at 8:09 am

Hi Lacie.

Well it’s not really particularly Australian. I think you’d be able to find it in north America. Though it’s not as common as other vegetables. Other alternatives you could are parnsip or sweet potato. Thanks Lacie.

These look great! And I just bet my nearly 3 year old son would love them too, he’s into anything crunchy at the moment! Thanks for sharing!
