Farm Fresh Recipes — celery
This is another recipe recommended to us by a CSA member. They took the original recipe from “May all be fed” and recommended adding cheese, chickpeas, and more tahini sauce, as we have shown below. Enjoy, and feel free to adjust the veggies you use based on what you have in your fridge!
This is our new go-to in the house. I love how simple it is, and how the veggies cook with the chicken, thus enhancing the flavor of both. Like most things, I usually burn it (I secretly like the burnt flavor though ;))and it is still delicious but do check on it as cooking time depends on how big you like to cut the chicken. This a no-recipe recipe: adapt it to your needs according to these general guidelines.
Corn chowder is a favorite here as it uses so many of our favorite ingredients. If you are like us, you froze the corn from last summer's harvest and this is precisely one of the best recipes to use it for. Add your favorite veggies, like carrots, and I highly recommend you make it with celery and kale.
Have you been cutting the leafy parts off of your celery and throwing it in the compost? Stop! Celery leaves are totally edible and belong in your salad bowl or soup pot, not the compost bin. This salad puts celery leaves right in the spotlight, where they belong. Don't have enough celery leaves? Just use finely chopped celery, or add other leafy greens to the mix.
