  • Yield: 4 Servings
  • Preparation Time: 5 Minutes
  • Cooking Time: 1 Hour 35 Minutes
  • Total Time: 1 Hour 40 Minutes


  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 5 oz (140 g) onion, finely chopped
  • 5 oz (140 g) carrot, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed and finely chopped
  • 4 celery hearts (do not separate stalks)
  • ½ cup 4 fl oz chicken stock
  • Sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
How to Make It
  1. Heat the coconut oil over medium heat in a skillet, add the onion, carrot, and garlic and sauté for about 5 minutes, until just starting to soften.  Spread the sautéed veggies in the base of an ovenproof dish and place the celery hearts on top.
  2. Pour the stock over the celery hearts, and season well with sea salt and black pepper.  Cover tightly – if your dish doesn’t have a lid use a cookie sheet – and bake at 350F for 1 ½ hours.  PS. Don’t forget to use oven mitts when removing the cookie sheet.
  3. Place on a serving dish and spoon the stock and sautéed veggies over the top.  So pretty!
