Grateng med sellerirot – Celery root (celeriac) bake

Celery root is used a lot in the Norwegian kitchen, and just the smell of it will make me hungry. My experience when I lived in rural USA was that it can be a bit hard to find in the stores, but would be worth looking around for! It’s also known as celeriac. 

This bake is a wonderful recipe to make if you want a meat free dinner, but also makes a great side dish!
