“I don’t know how she does it every time, but Damaris knows how to make me like vegetables that I normally really don’t like.” That’s what a guest told me when I had this on the menu. It’s celery at its best. Don’t be afraid, you’re going to love it. Just try a little bit at first. And then you’re convinced.


  • 1 bush celery

  • 10 cloves garlic

  • 75 ml rice vinegar

  • 200 ml of the best vegan broth

  • sunflower oil

  • coarsely ground black pepper (quite a lot)

  • Possibly quinoa as a bed underneath

  • salt and pepper

Cooking time

  • Finely chop the celery. Fry it on fairly high heat in the sunflower oil. The celery may brown, but not too brown. After 5 minutes, add the garlic and let it cook thoroughly, lightly browned. Don’t be too quick to think it’s good. The garlic should be really soft and brown and fried completely cooked.
  • Now you can add the rice vinegar. Let it boil for a while. Then add the stock. Now you can just let the celery braise. At least about 40 minutes. Longer is also allowed. The celery just shouldn’t have anything crunchy left. Have become totally soft.
    Add the black pepper.
  • I like quinoa with it.
