  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 Red onion (small, finely sliced)
  • 1 Garlic clove (large, finely diced)
  • 150 g Smoked Pancetta (diced)

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil to a medium heat and gently cook the onion and pancetta for about 5 minutes and then add in the garlic and cook for 1 more minute.
  • Peel the celeriac and grate the flesh using the coarsest grater option you have.
  • Squeeze out any excess liquid from the celeriac.

  1. These were a real hit with our kids, 9,6,2 we didn’t have Sage so used a tbsp of Za’Tar and it worked really well! We know we’ll have a celeriac in the next few veg boxes and this is the only way the kids have eaten it yet!
