Celery Rice

Here’s a nice side dish that sounds really delicious and easy. My mom makes a wild rice with celery and mushrooms, and you could probably make this celery rice with a wild rice mixture as well. Note that although the instructions have you combine the ingredients including the salt, salt is the ingredient that was scratched off. That is probably a personal preference.

Celery Rice (Bingham Collection)

1 1/2 c uncooked rice

1 tbsp chopped parsely

1 c celery slices 1/4″ thick

3/4 tsp salt

1 3/4 c water

2 tbsp butter

Combine rice, parsley, celery, salt & water in saucepan. Mix just until rice is moistened. Bring quickly to a boil over high heat, uncovered, fluffing rice gently once or twice with a fork (do not stir). Cover & remove from heat. Let stand 10 min. Add butter & mix gently with fork. Serve with creamed chicken, ham or tuna. Makes 4-5 servings.
