Celeriac puree

1 big celeriac

2 potatoes 

1 dl plant milk of your choice

50 grams kale leafs

1 small garlic clove

1/2 dl good quality cold pressed olive oil

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

1 tsp honey

1 dl walnuts

Garnish

2 small yellow beets, thinly slices (preferably using a mandoline, or a sharp knife)

1/2 dl walnuts

 

How to

Pre heat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius. 

Baked cauliflower: Remove the outer thicker leafs from the cauliflower, keep the lighter ones. Cut the cauliflower in to quarters (or halves if using smaller ones), and drizzle with olive oil all the way around. Season with salt and pepper. Put on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 25 minutes, turn around half way through. Turn up the temperature to 225 degrees and bake for another 5-10 minutes, until the cauliflower is soft and golden and crisp around the edges. 

Cook the rice according to instructions on the packaging. 

Celeriac puré: Peel and cut celeriac and potatoes in to small pieces. Boil in lightly salted water until soft, takes about 15 minutes. Remove the water, add the plant milk and mix in to a smooth puré using an immersion blender. Salt and pepper to taste. 

Kale pesto: Mix all the ingredients, except for the walnuts, until a smooth pesto. Add the walnuts and pulse until desired consistency. Salt and pepper to taste. 

Pickled pumpkin: Bring water, apple cider vinegar and salt to a boil. Remove from heat, add the pumpkin and put on a lid. Let sit for 30 minutes. Remove the liquid. 

Spread out the puree on 4 plates. Top with black rice and cauliflower. Add some kale pesto and sprinkle the pumpkin pieces. Garnish with yellow beet and walnuts.
