Braised Celery

After I made the stir fried cucumbers (I know right, weird!? Check it here), I basically decided to look in my fridge and find something else I've never cooked before and eat that too. This isn't really something I have never cooked before, obviously I've used the Holy Trinity as the basis of a lot of soups, but  I have never cooked celery by itself as a stand a lone dish. Might I quickly add that I was far from disappointed. It was actually freaking delicious!

One thing to note: feel free to use whatever kind of broth you would like. I actually made this Pho when I was sick and had some of the broth leftover; so I used that. It was damn good; that's pho:sho

8 celery stalks, sliced on the bias
1 tbsp vegan butter
salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 c broth
  1. Heat that butter in a saute pan. When it's melted, add the celery, salt and pepper; cook for about 5 minutes. 
  2. Add your broth, cover and take it down to low. Cook until the celery is tender but not mushy; took about another 5 minutes. 
  3. Remove the cover and let some of the liquid cook out. I stuck with the 5 minute intervals. It really seemed to be working for me. 
  4. Serve.
