Celery As Featured Vegetable

Celery can be more than just a background vegetable. While it was one of many ingredients in this rice dish, celery had a noticeable presence. The ingredients were:

  • walnuts
  • onion
  • garlic
  • fresh ginger
  • fresh turmeric
  • red, yellow and orange mini sweet peppers
  • celery
  • mushrooms
  • precooked (converted) rice
  • kosher salt
  • black pepper

This was intended to be a meal for one… and, yes, I am still in paper plate mode.

The leftovers made a good filling for Anaheim and poblano peppers from the last harvest of the season. When baking stuffed peppers I like to lay them in a puddle of sauce of some kind. A search of the pantry turned up this sweet and savory sauce, no doubt purchased on a whim of curiosity.

I topped the peppers with mixture of coarsely grown almonds and cashews, breadcrumbs, nutritional yeast and kosher salt.

The mango/coconut/pepper sauce had a good bit of heat to it so it was just as well the peppers were quite mild.
