This celery tastes amazing. I had never tried cooked celery on its own before, so I was a bit apprehensive about making this. After trying it, I have to say that I love cooked celery. I sprinkled Parmesan cheese over the top as recommended by other reviewers. Delicious, thanks!
This is one of our favorite recipes, but we just boil them on the stove until they are soft. We top it with parmesean cheese shavings.
I used Sysco chicken base with water and absolutely delicious. I made another main dish and baked at the same time.Grreat!!
