Celeriac Salad with Roasted Red Pepper and Pear

Oh Lots of Nice Things I have missed you. It’s been well over a week since my last post! I am sorry. Lots of things have been happening instead of my personal blog, which have left me little spare time. Firstly, I’ve started working part-time for gourmet vegetarian & vegan food producers The Parsnipship. They run market stalls across South Wales selling the most incredible pies, crumbles, burgers and bakes, which will soon be available on-line.

I’ve also began developing recipes for Vegusto – producers of the finest vegan cheeses, sausages, roasts and other tasty things. If you visit their website, you can sign up to receive two recipes a month via an e-Newsletter. Their products are healthy and sustainable, using no palm oil, animal products, GM or trans fats. Many are soya free too.

Luckily this lunchtime, I had some food time to myself, so decided to create a salad recipe using the strange vegetable that is celeriac. Grated in a food processor, this dish takes literally minutes to prepare and is a really fresh alternative to a plain green salad.

1. Grate the celeriac using a food processor if you have one, or by hand.
2. Place all the ingredients together in a salad bowl and mix in well with your hands.
3. Season to taste and add more olive oil if you like.
4. Serve with warm bread and homemade hummus.
