  1. Add 1 cup of hot water, the chopped onion, the sliced into rings white stalks of leeks to a large pot and simmer over medium-low heat for 3'-4'. Then cover with lid.
  2. Add the celeriac roots chopped in chunks, the sliced into rings pale green parts of the leeks. Pour some hot water if needed and cover with lid. Leave it for 3'-4'.
  3. Make sure that the water hasn't been absorbed. When the vegetables are softened, pour the wine. Let the wine reduce a bit. The delicate white wine enhances the aroma of the food.
  4. Place the minced tender stalks of the celeriacs and the diced small celeriac leaves into the pot. Then add the wheat groats coupled with a cup of hot water. Put the salt, the ground black pepper, the sweet paprika, the hot paprika and the ground ginger inside the pot and cover again with lid.
  5. Groats double in size during cooking, so make sure that the water hasn't been absorbed. You may need to add an extra cup of hot water.
  6. After 10' the vegetables are softened and the wheat groats are cooked. Now that the dish is cooked, remove from the heat and drizzle the olive oil so that you get all the health and taste benefits.
  7. Squeeze a lemon wedge onto our plate. Bon Appétit!
