Celery is available year-round and this tasty, fibre-rich vegetable is a valuable addition to any diet.
Buying and storing
When you select celery, go for fresh, firm stems which snap crisply. Store celery in a plastic bag in the fridge.
Celery is extremely versatile:
- Welcome as a canapé with tzatziki.
- Great added to soups or casseroles.
- Try a celery gratin made with sautéed slices layered in a dish with onions, breadcrumbs, walnuts and a little cheese.
