Celeriac Ribbons Tossed with Cavolo Nero, Garlic & Pumpkin Seeds

Serves 2: Prep 20 mins: Cook 15 mins


1 Small Celeriac, peeled

1 Lemon, juiced

40g Pumpkin Seeds

2 tbsp rapeseed Oil

15g Butter

4 Thyme sprigs, use leaves only

2 Garlic cloves, finely chopped

1/2 tsp dried chilli flakes

250g Cavolo Nero, leaves washed & finely chopped


1/Using a good vegetable peeler, cut long, wide strips (about the width of pappardelle) around the circumference of the celeriac, into a bowl of water and lemon juice, until you have lots of ribbons. Allow for more than you would if using pasta. 2/Dry-fry the pumpkin seeds in a pan until they’ve puffed and popped. Set aside. 3/Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Add the celeriac for 1 min, drain and reserve the water. In a non-stick frying pan, heat the oil and butter until the butter has melted and foamed up. Add the thyme, garlic and chilli. 4/Cook the garlic mixture for 5 mins until fragrant and almost golden, add the chard stalks and stir, cooking for a couple more mins. Add the pumpkin seeds and the chard leaves, season and squeeze in some lemon juice. Turn up the heat and stir in half the grated cheese. Add the celeriac and a slosh of the cooking water and toss, shaking the pan until the sauce looks glossy. Divide between plates, top with more cheese and serve.
