I made this recipe the for the first time a little over a month ago, fell in love with it and then panicked when I couldn’t find it again…I checked the app the recipe book and the book. Then realised I had found it on here. I have been making this recipe once a week, and it makes at least 4 meals worth. I sometimes add things like sauerkraut, kimchi or fermented pickles. It’s a definite favourite, extremely filling and my go when time is limited and I need a pick me up. Thank you Clare, great recipe!
Delicious, crunchy and incredibly healthy. Almost half of chicory root fibre comes from the prebiotic fiber inulin, a soluble fibre. Celery also rates highly. Your gut loves inulin as it protects the gut lining and enhances gut health.
• 5 tbsp olive oil
• 2 tbsp live apple cider vinegar
• 1/2 large fennel bulb
• 2 sticks celery
• 1 small red onion
• 2 red chicory, chopped
• 6 tbsp cold, cooked red rice
• 1 medium apple, cored and finely diced
• Large handful roughly chopped walnuts, toasted
• 100g feta, crumbled
• 15g cress or sprouted seeds
To make the dressing whisk together the olive oil and cider vinegar.
Finely chop the fennel, celery & onion. Place in a bowl and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp Maldon salt and mix it in to add flavour. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before adding the chicory, red rice and apple.
Toss with the dressing then scatter over the walnuts, feta and cress to serve.
Note: Although fibre is generally good for the gut, large amounts of fibre can make IBS symptoms worse in some people.
