    Here are a few ideas!

    Quick-Braised Celery

    Celery has such a lot going for it as a raw ingredient in salads, and because of that we rather forget how good it is cooked and served as a vegetable. This method is delightfully quick and easy, and tastes just wonderful.

    Before:


    After (Yum-Yum):

    Serves 4-6

    1 head celery, trimmed, de-stringed and cut into 3 inch (7.5 cm) pieces
    1 oz (25 g) butter
    1 medium onion, peeled and thinly sliced
    3 oz (75 g) carrot, peeled and thinly sliced
    8 fl oz (225 ml) stock made with Marigold Swiss vegetable bouillon powder
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
    salt and freshly milled black pepper

    You will also need a frying pan with a diameter of 10 inches (25.5 cm).

    First of all melt the butter in the frying pan and begin to cook the onions for 3-4 minutes over a medium to high heat, until lightly golden, then add the carrots and cook for a further 2 minutes. Now add the celery and continue to fry for 5 minutes more, or until everything is slightly browned at the edges. Season with salt and black pepper, then pour in the hot stock and place a lid on the pan. Turn the heat down and simmer gently for 20 minutes, until the vegetables are almost tender, then take the lid off and increase the heat to medium and continue to simmer till the liquid has reduced and become slightly syrupy ľ about 5 minutes. Serve the celery with the juices poured over and sprinkled with the parsley.

    A couple more of my favorites:

    Almond Baked Celery

    1 bunch celery, cut into bite - size pieces
    1/2 c. chopped, toasted almonds
    1/2 c. grated sharp cheddar cheese
    1 tsp. salt
    pepper
    1/2 tsp. paprika
    1 can cream of celery soup
    1/2 c. bread crumbs
    Cook celery in a small amount of water about 10 minutes. Drain well. Place celery in casserole; cover with almonds then cheese. Combine seasonings with soup and pour over all. Cover with bread crumbs. Bake 30 to 35 minutes at 375 degrees.

    Scalloped Celery with Cheese Recipe

    2 cups cooked celery cut into inch-long pieces
    2 tablespoons butter
    2 tablespoons flour
    1 cup milk
    Onion salt
    Pepper
    1 to 2 tablespoons grated cheese
    Bread crumbs

    Make a sauce of the flour, fat, milk and seasonings. Put the celery into this and turn it into a greased ramekin or earthen pudding dish. Sprinkle with cheese and bread crumbs, mixed with a little butter, and bake until a golden brown. This is a simple but hearty dish.

    Tchau!
