Celery Root Moussaka

A very delicious dish - if you haven't tried the combination of celery with beef so far, I recommend you do it. I used to eat a similar dish in a restaurant, I was so impressed that I tried to reproduce the recipe with the ingredients I had found in the market. In addition, it is a food that goes perfectly in a diet, has a lot of protein and reasonable calories. Try it, it's something very tasty!


Ground beef meat
1 kg
Celery root
2 pieces
if you take smaller celery from the market, take 3 pieces
Sunflower oil
100 ml
White onion
1 piece
Red dry wine
100 ml
2 pieces
Dried herbs(parsley, dill, etc)
1 tsp
0.25 tsp
Yellow cheese
100 g

Step by step

Step 1

Prepare the beef, if you haven't taken it minced, pass it through the mincer.
