    Ingredients
    • 1 celeriac(~800 – 900 g)
    • 100ml of water
    • 50g of wheat flour(for gluten free version use chickpea flour)
    • 100g of breadcrumbs(for gluten free version use gluten free breadcrumbs)
    • 5g of chopped fresh parsley
    • 1clove of garlic(~4 g)
    • spices of your choice(I used salt, pepper and garlic powder)
    • 3tablespoons of olive oil
    • extra water for boiling celeriac slices
    Instructions
    1. in a big pot put water to boil and meanwhile peel and clean the celeriac;
    2. with a sharp knife carefully cut the celeriac in about 0,7 cm/0.3” thick slices;
    3. put slices in boiling water and boil them for 3 – 5 minutes, then drain the water and let the slices cool down a bit;
    4. heat the oven to 200°C/390°F and meanwhile prepare dough and breading. In one bowl mix together flour and water until you get a fluid dough without lumps. In another bowl (or better – a big plate) mix together breadcrumbs, chopped parsley, crushed garlic and the chosen spices;
    5. line a baking tray with parchment paper and set up in line all the necessary things – first the celeriac slices, then the dough, then the breadcrumb mix and the baking tray as the last one;
    6. use one hand as the “wet” one and the other as the “dry” one. With your “wet” hand take one celeriac slice, dip it in the dough so that it’s completely covered, then keep it for a moment over the bowl to make the excess dough drip off and then transfer it to the breadcrumb plate and press. Now by using your “dry” hand cover with the breadcrumb mix also the upper side of the celeriac slice and press the breadcrumbs lightly in the slice. Then transfer the prepared slice to the baking tray. Repeat with all the remaining celeriac slices;
    7. drizzle over all the slices some olive oil and place the baking tray in the preheated oven. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden. If you want your celeriac cutlets to be extra crispy, bake them for extra 5 minutes by using the grill function;
    8. serve hot or cold with a few drops of fresh lemon juice or with some refreshing sauce.
