  • Cut each stalk of celery into 2-inch lengths. Cut each of those into 2 or 3 long pieces, depending on how wide the stalk is. Or try cutting each celery stalk into ½-inch slices.
  • Try adding other vegetables, such as onion, garlic and sliced carrots to cook with the celery.
  • Try adding sliced beef, chicken or pork to cook with the celery.
  • Try serving with Food Hero Baked Tofu and a whole grain, such as brown rice.
