What You Need

  • 3 Dandy® celery hearts, trimmed and halved lengthwise
  • 1 cup Dandy® celery, diced
  • 2 tbls. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tbls. honey
  • 1 1/2 cups apple juice
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 5 oz. blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cups walnuts, toasted and chopped
  • 1/4 cups fresh parsley leaves, chopped
  • Salt
  • Pepper, freshly ground

Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 450° F. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and then add the celery halves, making sure they are covered with water. Wait three minutes and then strain and transfer the celery to a jelly roll pan or shallow baking dish.
  2. Pour apple juice and wine into the bottom of the pan and drizzle the oil and honey over the celery. Season the celery with salt and roast about 25 minutes.
  3. While celery is roasting, combine diced celery, blue cheese, walnuts, and parsley in a small bowl and season with pepper to taste.
  4. When the celery has begun to brown, transfer the stalks to a platter and cover partially with foil to keep warm. Pour the excess roasting juices into a small saucepan and reduce over medium-high heat for 10 to 15 minutes, or until thickened.
  5. Spoon blue cheese mixture over celery, drizzle with reduced braising liquid, and serve.
