Braised Celery Hearts with Honey-Mustard Vinaigrette

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/braised_celery.html

From EatingWell:  January/February 2012

Braising makes celery tender and mild. Here we zip up celery with a sweet-and-sour honey-mustard glaze. Buy celery hearts trimmed and bagged or trim away the outer stalks from 2 big bunches and use the tender hearts.

4 servings | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Cut a thin slice from the base of each celery heart, leaving the stalks attached. Trim the tops so the hearts measure 7 to 8 inches long. Slice each heart in half lengthwise.
  2. Whisk vinegar, honey and mustard until blended; set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a large deep skillet over medium heat. Add the celery hearts cut-side down, snuggling them in if necessary. Cover and cook, turning once, until lightly browned and tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Increase the heat to medium-high and add the vinegar mixture; bring to a boil. Cook, turning the celery to coat, until the liquid is reduced and syrupy, about 4 minutes. Serve drizzled with the sauce.
