Celery IS a key ingredient

Celery is a vegetable that is overlooked and often taken for granted. We’re used to seeing it in salads and paired with carrots as a vegetable to dip in various and sundry substances, but it’s time to regroup.

Don’t neglect celery as more than just a tired old snack food.

It has the advantage of being nutritious and a real plus as far as diets go, and it’s considered a negative-rated source of calories.

String it before eating, a task easily done with a vegetable peeler. Whether you enjoy it as soup, salad, a side dish or part of your Thanksgiving dinner, there should be a least one recipe featured that you’ll enjoy. All you have to do is try it.
