Oven-Roasted Celeriac, Potatoes, Carrots and Garlic

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon salt (sea salt, preferred)

teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

1 teaspoon smoked paprika (see note)

12-16 ounces celery root (celeriac), ends trimmed, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces

pound skin-on red potatoes, washed, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces

pound carrots (about 4 medium), cleaned and cut into 1-inch pieces

large onion, cut root to tip into quarters

cup whole, peeled garlic cloves

Place oven rack in upper-middle position and heat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a jelly roll pan with foil. Set aside.

To a large mixing bowl add olive oil, salt, pepper and paprika; whisking briefly to combine. Add celeriac, potatoes, carrots, onion and garlic and, using a large rubber spatula, stir and fold until vegetables are coated with seasoning. Transfer vegetables to jelly roll pan, spreading them evenly in a single layer. Scrape bowl with spatula and drizzle over vegetables. Roast 20 minutes. Carefully (it's hot) remove pan from oven, using a spatula turn vegetables over and redistribute in a single layer. Roast 15 minutes more, turning vegetables one more time halfway through. Serve immediately. Serves six.

Cook's note: Sweet or hot paprika can be substituted for the smoked variety.
