One day while I was cutting up some celery for my kids snack I realized that no one ever serves celery cooked for a side dish. I was curious and began looking for a recipe to try and was lucky enough to discover this one. I made it for my husband and me to go with our dinner that night and it was WONDERFUL. The celery was so tender and flavorful even my husband RAVED about it (and I was a little leary serving it to him to begin with). I know the thought of braised celery doesn't sound very exciting but try it when you are in the mood for something different! It's delicous. I wish there were more than 5 stars! Read More

Not a recipe I would make again. Rather bland although it is a way to use up celery. Read More

This side dish was easy to make and flavorful the only thing I suggest is to completely omit the salt since the chicken broth already contain plenty of sodium. Mine came to salty because of that(and I used very little salt). Read More

excellent! I usually find the taste of celery too outspoken. This recipe makes an excellent side dish of celery with a very smooth flavor. I added some lemon juice to it which made it even better. I often serve this with fish. Read More

The only fresh vegetable I had was celery so right before dinner time I did a search and came up with this one. I am so happy I tried it! My husband and I have had it twice in the past week and both really enjoy it. Read More

I really only tried this recipe because I had a bunch of celery left over after making soup. I was pleasantly surprised. It's nothing exciting but it's a nice light & mild side dish to go with a meal esp. of a spicier meat. I would definitely make this again. I did sprinkle a little parmesan cheese over it before serving. Read More

This is great! I used low sodium chicken broth and lowered the butter amount. Celery is said to lower blood pressure if eaten everyday so for my husband's diet I have been trying to find recipes w/ lots of celery. This is the best one! Read More

LOVED this!! I'm always left with so much celery that just goes bad but this was a great way to use that up! I would definitely emit the salt next time since the bouillon is so salty. But even so 5 stars!! Read More

I am always looking for different side dishes to add variety to my meals and this is one of the best I've found. My husband and I are doing the low-carb thing but I have decided that even if we weren't I would still make this dish. It is simply delicious. Read More
