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!
