Roasted celery with crispy parmesan topping

Put a spin on the classic meat and veg dinner with this delicious cider glazed roasted celery with crispy parmesan topping. Fast, easy and nutritious, roasted celery is a great addition to any feast and the perfect warming dish to complement those cool autumn nights. 

It tastes delicious with chicken, game or fish – or, if you like to eat vegetarian, try it on its own with some roasted potatoes instead. The sweetness of the apple cider and nutty flavour from the parmesan cheese fill the kitchen with a wonderful aroma. Don’t be surprised when your family asks for seconds!

Serves: 4    Preparation Time: 15 mins    Cooking Time: 45 mins

You’ll need:

  • 1 head of celery, washed, separated into stalks and cut into approx. 10cm lengths

  • 25g Panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
