How to cook Celery

Celery can be eaten raw in salads or chopped up and cooked with vegetables such as onions, carrots and leeks as a base for soups, sauces and casseroles. The larger outer stalks are best for cooking, while the inner stalks are more tender, so ideal for eating raw. Celery is also lovely braised whole. Don’t throw away the leaves – you can add them to salads or sprinkle them over soups as a garnish. Celeriac, which is the swollen root of a related plant, is best mashed, steamed, roasted or grated raw into a salad.
