Tapioca Crisp

Main Instructions
  1. First grab the savoy cabbage and push a sharp knife through the centre of it leaving it whole and place it in a pot of boiling salted water for 8 to 12 mins or until it has a small bite to it. Remove and cool down in cold water. Break off the large outer leaves and remove the centre stalk that runs up the middle of the leaf. When you get to the heart of the cabbage, cut it in half and julienne, leave to one side.
  2. Line a 2lb bread tin with cling film then layer the cabbage leaves along it covering the bottom and sides and leaving enough to cover the top, then season.
  3. Grate the potato (do not put in water) and the carrot. Sweat off in the olive oil in a pot with the spices for 15mins on a medium heat with a lid, stirring occasionally, when it has a little bite left remove from the heat and add the seeds and julienne cabbage, check seasoning, allow to cool.
  4. Place the mix in the bread tin and fold the cabbage leaves over and press to seal the terrine.
  5. Remove from the tin and slice into 1-inch slices, placing each slice on a piece of greaseproof paper. Place the terrine in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 8 mins.
