Simple Carrots and Celery Side Dish

Simple Carrots and Celery Side Dish created by Lalaloula

This is a super simple and tasty side dish. I think celery is an underused vegetable and this is a nice way of using it. The vegetable stock can be a little bit salty so if you don't use a low sodium variety this is best served with a meal that doesn't otherwise have a lot of salt.

Ready In:
17mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 4 ounces celery, chopped
  • 7 ounces carrots, chopped to medium thickness

directions

  • Put stock in medium sized pot and bring to a rapid boil.
  • Add the carrots and the celery to the pot.
  • Boil for about 10 to 12 minutes or until the carrots are tender.
  • Scoop out the veggies and serve. Most of the liquid will be boiled away so you can simple discard that but if I am serving plain rice I will often spoon it over the top since it is tasty and there isn't much of it.

    This dish is absolute proof that some of the simplest recipes are the best. I would never have believed that it would taste as good as it did. Perfect companion to my tenderloin roast and baked potatoes.

    Carrots and celery are DH's favourite combination of veggies, we have them often, but usually just boiled in water. Using the the stock was a change, I didn't have any veggie stock so I used chisken stock. Made these for Thanksgiving dinner, thanks for posting.Dec 25/08 made these for Christmas dinner but instead of the celery I used pea pods, great combination, turned out great, everyone loved them.
