Braised Celery

My “roommate” sent me this recipe in an email, a pretty direct hint to try making it. Recipe from A Girl DeFloured

Total Time: 15 minutes
Serves 2-3

Ingredients
4 stalks of celery, scrubbed and ends trimmed (chop and reserve leaves)
2 tsp butter
Pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup of chicken stock

Steps

  1. Cut celery into 1-inch slices on the diagonal.
  2. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add celery, along with salt and pepper and cook until it starts to become tender.
  3. Add broth, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for ~5 minutes. Uncover and cook for about 5 minutes longer, allowing the broth to reduce and caramelize a bit.
  4. Taste for seasoning and serve immediately, garnished with reserved chopped leaves.

Turned out pretty tasty but I think I’d still rather have it with a protein like chicken, and maybe peanut butter. Cooked up fast, though!
Lesson learned: I tried another portion of celery with chicken sausage, plus apple. The apple was definitely a mistake. The sausage was…never meant to be made with sage. Blegh.

Combo #2: celery, chicken sage sausage, and apple.
