Celery and Potato Braise (Italian style)

Carole's Chatter: Celery & Potato Braise

I got the idea for this Celery and Potato Braise from Ingredienti, the book I posted about yesterday.

This is a simple dish but combines celery and potato in a way I have never thought of.  All you need is a couple of celery sticks, a potato, salt, olive oil and lemon juice.

You peel the celery trying to remove all the stringy bits.  Then peel your potato and cut it into wedges.  Cut the peeled celery into 2 or 3 pieces.

Gently sautee the celery and potato in the olive oil (the book says you should use extra virgin) together with salt and a little lemon juice.

If your food starts sticking you can add a tablespoon of water to the pot.

The flavour was subtle but good.  I only used 2 teaspoons of lemon juice – next time I'd double that.


  1. Ingredienti inspired me to try some new things too.

  2. So simple and easy, it sounds like something to try.

  3. That sounds good, especially as a winter dish.

  4. It sounds simple but delicious. ;-)
