  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.

  3. To make the dressing, mix the remaining oil, Parmesan, vinegar, mustard and yogurt with some seasoning. Lay the roasted veg and patties over the salad, then drizzle over the dressing and serve.

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.
