Celery, herb and bacon parcels


  1. Cut the celery into approx. 3 cm pieces, removing any tough ends or strings.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a frying pan and gently cook the celery and onion for 10 minutes, remove and add the bacon and cook until crispy.
  3. Cut 4 x 30cm circles of baking parchment, divide the celery and onion between the circles, then sprinkle over the herbs and bacon.
  4. Mix together the remaining olive oil, Dijon mustard and vinegar.
    Top this: This is best done in an empty lidded jam jar and give it a good shake
  5. Divide this mixture between the celery parcels.
  6. Wrap up the parcels by bringing the edges together and tying with a piece of string. Then place on a baking tin and cook for 30 minutes.
  7. Leave the parcels to cool for a few minutes before carefully opening.
