  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. 
  2. Heat ½ tbsp oil in a baking dish, then add the onions. Cover with foil and bake for 35-40 mins, until tender.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the bulgur wheat following the pack instructions.
  4. Remove the onions from the oven and carefully scoop out the centres with a spoon. Chop the removed centres and add to a frying pan with the remaining oil and the celeriac. Cook over a low heat for 5 mins, stirring often.
