Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp olive oil

  • ½ tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 500g pork mince
  • 2 eating apples, 1 peeled and grated, 1 cored and cut into smallish chunks
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • Good pinch of chilli flakes
  • 2 celery sticks, chopped
  • 4 tbsp crème fraîche
  • Juice of ½ small lemon
  • Handful of rocket leaves or lamb’s lettuce

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan160°C/gas 4. Drizzle half the oil into a roasting tin and tumble in the beetroot. Toss with the cumin seeds and balsamic vinegar, season, then roast for 30-45 minutes until tender.
