Ingredients: Descriptions and Photos
Celery

(Celery)  We enjoy celery either raw (in salads, as a snack, or with dips), or cooked (in soups, roasted vegetable dishes, or in stir fries).  Celery is very low in calories, but has an interesting flavor which complements dishes.  Select celery that is firm and free of signs of decomposition (brown areas and soft spots).  See the nutritional charts below for raw and cooked celery.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-6)
