Braised Celery and Peas (serves 4)

Braised Celery and Peas (serves 4)

Came up with this when I was wondering how to use up the celery I had bought too much of and didn’t have enough veg. broth/stock to make soup. I softened an onion, added the chopped celery, some broth and a cup of frozen peas. Key is to not let celery get too mushy. I served this side dish with pork tenderloin, fingerling potatoes and an onion marmalade. The veg. looks nice and green and Spring like, too.

1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil seasoned with salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 medium onion – chopped

1 medium head of celery – chopped

1 cup veg. broth/stock

1 cup frozen peas

Heat oil and when sizzling add onion and let soften and brown a little.

Add celery, peas and broth/stock.

Bring to boil, then simmer for 10 – 15 minutes.
