Braised Celery

Braised Celery

I love celery. I like to add it to salads and soups but mostly I eat it raw with a dip like hummus or tahini.

This modest vegetable is brimming with healthy yumminess.
~ Celery is high in fiber, magnesium and vitamin A.
~ It is a powerful anti-inflammatory.
~ It has a high water content that aids in digestion.
~ It helps reduce bad cholesterol and lower blood pressure.
~ It has cancer fighting nutrients.

This recipe is a refreshing way to cook celery and it is very easy to make. It makes a great side dish to any meal.
