Ingredients

Yogurt-Goat Cheese-Horseradish Dressing

  • 6 Tbsp soft goat cheese with herbs I use Laura Chenel - my favorite
  • 4 Tbsp + 2 tsp plain Greek full-fat yogurt I use Fage Greek Yogurt
  • 4 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 Tbsp + 2 teaspoon grated fresh horseradish
  • 2 tsp minced garlic 2 large garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp kosher salt

Celery Root Lettuce Wraps with Beluga Lentils

  • 1 cups Beluga Lentils dried
  • 1 cup thinly sliced fennel
  • 3 large radishes thinly sliced
  • 1 large spring onion 1/2 cup
  • 1 crisp apple diced
  • 2 cups red cabbage shredded
  • 4 cups celery root julienned
  • 2 Tbsp sliced mint
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 head of Bibb or Boston lettuce

Instructions

Yogurt-Goat Cheese-Horseradish Dressing

  • Combine all of the dressing ingredients in a small bowl, cover, and let sit for at least one hour to allow the flavors to meld.

Celery Root Lettuce Wraps with Beluga Lentils

  • Bring 8 cups of water to a boil. Rinse the lentils and add them to the boiling water. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 20 - 25 minutes, or until tender. Cool under cold water.
  • Use a mandolin to thinly slice the fennel, radishes, spring onion and cabbage. Either use the julienne feature on the mandolin to julienne the celery root, or thinly julienne by hand.
  • Combine the fennel, radishes, spring onion, apple, cabbage, celery root, mint, lentils and lemon juice together in a large bowl. (You should have 2 cups cooked lentils.) Lightly toss with one half of the dressing. Add salt and pepper if needed.
  • Separate the head of lettuce into individual leaves. Scoop approximately 1/4 cup of celery root mixture onto each lettuce leaf and drizzle with 2 - 3 teaspoons additional dressing. Serve.
  • To eat, gently roll and hold in your hand. Eat and enjoy!

Notes

The lentils and dressing can both be made up to 3 days ahead.
