Curry Up and Get Some Delicious

This is a super simple meal. I had some leftover roasted chicken that I cut up into small bites and added it to a creamy curry sauce. Next I cooked some noodles and poured the sauce over it. Garnish with some chopped mixed greens and crispy red bell pepper and you are all set. Tastes great hot or cold.

Delicious Celery Two Ways-Smoothie and Spread

Celery Smoothie and Toast Topping.

Celery Smoothie

Celery Puree on Toast with marinara, mozzarella and chile oil

If you have a garden and are growing celery it pops up pretty quickly, and you want to use it as soon as possible. One way to do that is juice it up. If you want an alternative, skim off the top and put it on toast as a spread. This toasty has a base of celery purée, two small dollops of marinara, shredded mozzarella and a bit of chile oil from my good friend Larry at Peppahead.com

Then pop in in the oven for a few minutes. Eat it now, or put in the fridge for a fresh bite later. You can also cut it into small squares and put it on top of your favorite veg. Cucumber slices are a nice complement to this combo. Zucchini slices are also great.

A quick side of chopped celery and red bell peppers and it's all set. You might want to serve the side on top of a slice of tomato. Or forego the toast, and just spread the celery purée on top of the tomato for a super healthy snack. Perfect for summer picnics.
