  • 1 lb (500 g) celery root, thinly sliced

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease 13- x 9-inch (3 L) baking dish with 2 tbsp (30 mL) oil. Toss together sweet potatoes, celery root, carrots, thyme, garlic, salt and pepper.
  2. Arrange one-quarter of the root vegetable mixture in prepared baking dish. Layer one-quarter of the cheese over top. Repeat layers three more times.
  3. Whisk together flour with 1/4 cup (60 mL) broth until smooth; whisk in remaining broth and milk. Pour over casserole; press to distribute liquid evenly. Drizzle with remaining oil.
  4. Cover with foil; bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Remove foil; bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with parsley and chives.
