In most recipes you only use the stalks of celery, but did you know that fresh, green leaves are also great for cooking? Check out this appleand cucumber smoothie with celery. 

Celery leaves can be used for extra flavour in soups, stews and sauces, or processed into a smoothie, just like this recipe. They’re also great in a stir-fry, or you can substitute celery for parsley in a classic tabbouleh.

  • Grate the ginger and put in a blender.
  • Wash the celery leaves thoroughly and cut the celery stalks and cucumber into small pieces. Add to blender.
  • Add the apple juice and blend for 30 seconds. If you’re using fresh apples instead, cut them in to small pieces and add to the blender with the water. Blend. 


Tips from the author

Extra tip: To keep your celery leaves fresh, wrap the leaves in a damp clean tea-towel or paper towel and store them in the fridge.
