Season with celery salt and roll up in cabbage leaves. Set aside.

Slice remaining cabbage into thin strips and spread over the bottom of a casserole dish.

Add chicken broth.

Lay roll on cabbage, cover and roast for 45 – 60 minutes, depending on thickness, until meat thermometer reads 180°F (82°C).

In a large bowl, toss root vegetables with oil and thyme. Transfer to a baking sheet and roast 30 minutes.
