This recipe may sound strange to you and it did for me at first too, until I had a celery showing signs of despair that really needed some help. I came across this recipe in a Ricardo cookbook called Meals for Every Occasion, which my friend had given me a few years back as a holiday gift.
Out of all the recipes I’ve shared up to this point where I claim they are quick and easy, this one by far takes the cake. Wash, cut, chop and roast. Ta da!
We make it pretty often at home as it makes a great side to any protein. I also just made it for my husbands family for the first time this past week. They really enjoyed it, which makes me super happy as I don’t get to cook with them often. I made it as a side to my husbands barbecue ribs. Yum!
