Step 1

Peel the potatoes and cook them in lightly salted boiling water. Once they are ready, mash them in a salad bowl. Set the cooking water aside.

  • Potatoes

Step 2

Peel the celeriac and cut it into 2 cm slices. Bake it at a temperature of 85° for 6 hours until it dries.

  • Celeriac

Step 3

Now put the saffron in a container with water and wait for the water to color, then pour it into the salad bowl containing the potatoes with their cooking water. Add a grating of pepper and, with the help of a whisk, create a smooth and homogeneous mixture that looks like a sabajon.

  • Saffron
  • Pepper

Step 4

Put the soy flakes in a nonstick pan with a spoon of olive oil. Toast everything on a medium heat for 5 minutes, until golden.

  • Soy flakes

Step 5

Cook the pasta in boiling salted water until it’s perfectly “al dente”. Drain it, pour it into the bowl with the mixture and stir.

Step 6

Grate the celeriac on top and complete the dish with crispy soy flakes and grated pepper to taste.
