    Celery Root, Chestnut, Spinach & Feta Filo Pies

    Ingredients

    4 tbsp olive oil
    2 garlic cloves, crushed
    1/2 large or 1 whole small head celery root, cut into short thin
    sticks
    9 oz/250 g baby spinach leaves
    3 oz/85 g/scant 1/2 cup cooked, peeled chestnuts, coarsely chopped
    7 oz/200 g feta cheese (drained weight), crumbled
    1 egg
    2 tbsp pesto sauce
    1 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley
    pepper
    4 sheets filo pastry, about 13 x 7 inches/ 32 x 18 cm each


    1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat,
    add the garlic, and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add the
    celery root and cook for 5 minutes, or until soft and browned. Remove
    from skillet and keep warm.

    2. Add 1 tablespoon of the remaining oil to the skillet, then add the
    spinach, cover, and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the spinach has
    wilted. Uncover and cook until any liquid has evaporated.

    3. Mix the garlic and celery root, spinach, chestnuts, cheese, egg,
    pesto, parsley, and pepper in a large bowl. Divide the mixture among
    4 individual gratin dishes or put it all into 1 medium gratin dish.

    4. Brush each sheet of filo with the remaining oil and arrange,
    slightly scrunched, on top of the celery root mixture. Bake in a
    pre-heated oven, 375 F/190 C, for 15-20 minutes, or until browned.
    Serve at once.

    This sounds gorgeous! I'd skip on the chestnuts, they're a
    super-spiker for me, but I'd be fine with the filo.

    I'll look out for celeriac, haven't seen it yet this year, and save
    the recipe
