    Celery leaves
    Tomato05 posted:
    When I buy celery, I trim off the leaves and eat only the stalks.

    I often wonder though, if there is maybe a good use for the leaves - am I throwing out a useful part of the vegetable? I was thinking of trying to use it in soup.

    Are the leaves nutritious at all (otherwise no point in using them, I suppose)?
    Jis4Judy responded:
    Hi Tomato I do use them in soup when I make a home made stock then broth.. I have no idea if they are nutricious but I suspect they are after all they are a green vegie
    Hugs Judy:)
    FrenchBulldogMom responded:
    The leaves taste a lot stronger than the stalks. I always use them in my beef stew and soups. Usually in plants, the leaves do have more nutrients than the stalks.
    Tomato05 replied to Jis4Judy's response:
    Thanks Judy and FBMom - I think I'll do the same and use them in soups, casseroles, stews.

    Won't tell my dinner guests I'm feeding them celery leaves!
