  • 1 Celeriac (Celery root)
  • 1 head Green Cabbage
  • 10 Oil packed Sundried Tomato halves Chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic Minced
  • 1 cup Plant Milk Almond, cashew or coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp Barbeque Sauce


  • 4 tbsp Breadcrumbs or finely chopped almonds if gluten-free
  • 1 tbsp Curry Powder
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tbsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tsp Sea salt or Kosher Salt
  • 2 tsp Thyme


Cooking in the oven

  • Preheat oven to 400F. 
  • Begin by mixing the ingredients for the crust together in a bowl and set it aside. 
    Cut the cabbage into thin slices and add them to a large oven-safe pot. 
  • Next, peel and rinse the celeriac and place it in the pot, pushing the cabbage to the sides a little to make room. Once the celeriac is nestled in the sliced cabbage drizzle barbecue sauce on top of the cabbage and celeriac. Spread the barbecue sauce over the top of the celeriac and cover with the mixed crust mix. Pour any extra crust mix over the sliced cabbage and add the minced garlic and sun-dried tomatoes. Gently pour plant milk all around the celeriac making sure it only hits the cabbage. 
  • Cover with a lid and bake the celeriac roast for around 1 hour in the middle of the oven or until the celeriac is for tender all the way through.
  • Carefully cut the celeriac roast into quarters and serve with a side of the creamy cabbage. 
    Garnish with fresh basil and enjoy.
