Celery and Potato Braise – Italian Style (Tuesday Redux)


Carole's Chatter: Celery and Potato Braise – Italian Style (Tuesday Redux)


I got the idea for this Celery and Potato Braise from Ingredienti

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.
