  Shallot 1 Large
  Cider vinegar 8 Fluid Ounce
  Caster sugar 1 Ounce
  Red skinned apple 1
  Lemon 1⁄2 , grated rind & juiced
  Mature cheddar cheese 3 Ounce
  Fresh white breadcrumbs 4 Ounce
  Spring onion 1
  Eggs 2 Small
  Fresh parsley 3 Tablespoon, chopped
  English mustard powder 1 Pinch
  Nutmeg 1 Pinch, grated
  Dried thyme 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Plain flour 2 Tablespoon (to dust)
  Butter 1⁄2 Ounce

1. Using a vegetable peeler, peel the carrot and parsnip then shred the carrot, parsnip and courgette into ribbons, into a bowl of iced cold water. Put the mustard seeds in a small bowl of warm water and leave to soak for 30 minutes then drain.

2. In a small saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil, add the shallot and fry for 2 to 3 minutes until softened. Add the soaked mustard seeds, cider vinegar and sugar and boil until reduced to a third. Finely chop the apple, add to the pan with the lemon rind and cook for a further 4 to 5 minutes.
3. In a bowl, grate the cheese and add breadcrumbs. Finely chop the spring onion and add to the bowl with one of the eggs, 2 tablespoons of the parsley, mustard powder, nutmeg and thyme. Mix well, squeezing the mixture together with your hands.

4. Beat the remaining egg. Shape the mixture into 4 patties then roll in the flour, the egg and the remaining breadcrumbs. Mark the patties with a palette knife, by gently pressing the knife on top.
5. In a frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil and the butter, when foaming, add the patties and fry for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until golden.
6. Drain the curled-up vegetables on to a tea-towel and pat dry.
7. Heat the remaining oil in a wok or frying pan. Add the vegetables to the wok with the lemon juice and remaining 1 tablespoon of parsley and stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes.

8. Onto warmed serving plates, spoon the vegetable ribbons then add the cheese patties and a spoonful of the relish.
