This sweet, earthy slaw is a firm favourite of mine — I often stuff it into warm pitta bread for lunch.


  • Handful of walnuts, broken into small pieces
  • Handful of pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
  • ½ celeriac


Toast the walnuts and pumpkin seeds in a dry frying pan over a medium heat for a few minutes, until lightly browned and the pumpkin seeds are starting to pop. Tip into a large bowl and allow to cool, then add the celeriac, raisins and parsley.
