Ingredients

  • 1 celeriac root bulb, peeled and sliced thin
  • 1 golden beet bulb, peeled and sliced thin
  • 1 bunch radishes (about 6–8), sliced thin
  • 1 cup rainbow carrots, sliced (If you can’t find mixed rainbow carrots at the grocery store, orange carrots are fine.)
  • ½ cup red onion, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 2 cups pearled couscous, cooked and drained according to package directions
  • 2 cups arugula, packed

Dressing:

  • 2 tablespoons horseradish root, grated
  • 3 tablespoons crème fraiche
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Place root vegetables and onion in a mixing bowl. Add oil, salt and pepper. Toss vegetables to evenly coat; then spread onto a large baking sheet. Bake 45 minutes, tossing vegetables every 20 minutes.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together all dressing ingredients.
  • To assemble: On a large platter, lay down couscous first. If couscous seems dry or stuck together, drizzle in some olive oil and mix before placing on the platter. Add arugula.
  • Arrange roasted vegetables over arugula. Top with some of the dressing, or set the dressing aside, allowing people to add it to their liking.
