Appetizers/ Starters

Mash celery with bacon

Hello hello friends of the celery!

Want something new? Fresh? Healthy? Something different as the usual snack? Or offer a light and savoury starter to your guests? Got it! You are one the right page here!

Today I’m going to share a stunning recipe : mash celery with bacon. I suggest to eat it cold ( but warm works too). It is tasty, light and so easy to cook !

You can cook it anytime of the year and serve it with any kind of drinks.

You can also serve it as a starter or in a nice verrine on your Sunday brunch plate.

Cherry on the cake : it is a clever way to get the reluctant ones to eat celery. And more, I like to use vegetables that we don’t use so much any more.  When we mention celery, we think of the school cafeteria meals or something you might find in a supermarket. But if you cook it with the appropriate ingredient like bacon, you will get a delicate dish with a light smoked taste.

Finally, you can keep it quite a while in your fridge and this vegetable is really cheap.

So, try it and keep me posted !
