Braised Celery

Title: Braised Celery

From: She Likes Her Food

Ingredients:

1 head celery
240 ml chicken stock
2 tbsp olive oil
8 whole garlic cloves
1 pinch thyme
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan

Cut the celery into thick matchsticks and chop the celery leaves too. Place the celery, stock, olive oil, garlic, and thyme in a medium frying pan over high heat.

Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer, partially covered, for about 15-20 minutes, until the celery is tender and the liquid is reduced. Then remove the celery and put it in a serving dish. Keep the liquid in the pan and heat to reduce and thicken it, which should take about 4-5 minutes. Then pour the liquid over the celery and sprinkle the parmesan all over, ensuring full coverage. Then cook in the oven at 200°C for 10-15 minutes, until the cheese is well melted and starting to brown. Remove from the oven and serve.
