  • Preparation time: 15 minutes
  • Cooking time: 35 minutes to 40 minutes
  • Total time: 50 minutes to 55 minutes 55 minutes

Serves: 2

Ingredients

1 small celeriac (about 500g-600g)
4 tbsp olive oil
1 red onion, chopped
400g can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 slice rye bread with sunflower seeds
1 tsp caraway seeds
¼ x 25g pack fresh parsley, finely chopped
Pea shoots or watercress and vine ripened tomato salsa, to serve

 

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7. Cut away the skin from the celeriac and quarter the flesh. Cut each piece into 1cm thick slices, then across into small chips. Put 2 tablespoons of the oil in a roasting tin and put it in the oven to heat up for a few minutes. Once the oil is hot, carefully tip in the celeriac chips, turning them to coat. Season and bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes until pale golden, turning once or twice with a fish slice.

2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of the remaining oil in a frying pan and gently fry the onion for 5 minutes. Tip the beans into a bowl and mash well with a fork. Crumble in the rye and sunflower seed bread. Add the onion, caraway seeds and parsley. Season and mix together well. Shape into 4 even-sized burgers.

3. Heat the remaining oil in the frying pan and gently fry the burgers for about 2 minutes on each side until hot and slightly crisped. Transfer to serving plates with the celeriac chips and serve with pea shoots or watercress and the tomato salsa.
