Roasted celery and blue cheese with walnuts

Great as a side for the festive table or equally good as a light lunch. You choose!

Serves: 6 as a side

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 30 minutes

You’ll need

4 bunches of celery – 3 halved, 1 finely diced

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

5 tbsp honey

Salt and pepper, to taste

500ml cider

150g blue cheese

25g walnuts

Fresh parsley, chopped

What to do

Preheat the oven to 220°C.

Arrange the celery halves in a large baking tray – you may need to trim the tops to fit. Drizzle with the oil and 3 tbsp of the honey. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the cider into the tray and roast until the celery begins to brown, about 25-30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl mix together the blue cheese, walnuts, parsley, and remaining celery. Season with pepper.

Spoon the cheese mixture over the cooked celery halves, drizzle with the remaining honey, and serve.
