  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Put the carrots, potato and celeriac in a roasting dish. Pour over half the olive oil and some seasoning, then cook for 45-50 mins, turning occasionally, until tender and golden.
  2. Meanwhile, make the patties. Put the mince, basil and fennel seeds in a bowl, add some seasoning and shape into little patties. Heat a griddle pan to hot, brush the patties with oil and cook for 5-6 mins on each side, or until cooked through.

This was absolutely delicious, a really unusual combination of flavours that worked so well. Will be a regular salad for us salad lovers!

I loved this dish, it was really simple to make but tasted delicious. I was also a bit apprehensive about the fennel and basil patties with the parmesan dressing but it went well.

Yum yum!!! Made this tonight but changed the recipe a bit: We had pork mince in the freezer so used that instead. Wasn't disappointed as it was absolutely gorgeous. Got some leftovers to take to work tomorrow too. The fennel in the patties is delicious and goes really well with the parmesan dressing which I was a bit apprehensive about. Will definitely make this again.
