Vegetables California

“A nice way to dress up carrots.” – Calla Ferre

“I’m generally not a fan of celery, cooked or otherwise, and I was skeptical of this recipe before I tried it. But it actually has a nice fresh taste and the lemon sauce takes a bit of the harshness out of the celery. Be careful not to overcook it though; it would not be very good if it were mushy.” – April Ferre
