Common celery may be overlooked in many dishes and regularly served raw with dip or peanut better, but try them braised or sautéed for a refreshing taste. For more innovative ways to utilize this vegetable, add them to juice and include them with the leaves in salads, soups, stews, casseroles, and stir-fries.
