  • 2 sticks of celery finely chopped

  • 75 grams of ground almonds
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • Pinch of ground cayenne
  • 50 grams toasted almond flakes (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to season


  • STEP 1
    Gently fry the onions, garlic, fennel and celery and green pepper in a tablespoon of olive oil until soft.

    Add the tin of tomatoes and ground almonds, basil and cayenne and bring to boiling.
  • STEP 3
    Add salt and pepper seasoning to taste before serving on pasta or baked potato. Sprinkle over the toasted almonds to serve.
