Celery Almandine

Rated as 4.6 out of 5 Stars

"This is a wonderful recipe that my Aunt Stevie shared with me at my engagement party over 35 years ago! This is a super easy, rather elegant, slightly crunchy, kinda nutty side dish--and I really don't even care much for celery."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir almonds until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir celery, onion, bouillon, sugar, and ginger into almonds. Continue to cook and stir until celery is tender, about 10 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • This can be started early, even a day ahead, and finished just before you're ready to serve the main course. Toast the almonds, add the remaining ingredients, cover and refrigerate until you're nearly ready to serve. This side dish is especially good with Asian-style dishes, like my pork chops Indonesian.

Kind of bland. And that's after adding a clove of garlic and chopped green onion. Maybe some dried cranberries next time? But there probably won't be a next time.

I made a lot of changes. I used one small real onion, cooked it for a bit, put in the almonds, cooked until they were golden, added two cloves of garlic, and cooked for another minute or two. T...

Enjoyed by all hot and cold. Even the non veggie eaters.

No changes. I will make it again!

Very tasty something to do with that extra celery. It really adds to the dinner table. No changes did cook a bit loner as I liked the celery more cooked

I made this for my husband who typically tuns up his nose whenever celery is in front of him, but he very much enjoyed this and asked for it again! This will make its way into my recipe book.

I enjoyed this but my husband not so much. I would probably try making this with olive oil instead of butter to make it a little healthier.

Great recipe; whole family liked it. Since making it the first time, I no longer measure the celery. I just use all of the medium and large stalks of one head, trimmed. Comes out well every time.
