Like you, I often overlook celery except as a component of a soffritto. It's astringency can be very refreshing. It deserves better!

I agree, Frank, and that's why I am experimenting with it.


I've been having trouble with celery here, as the organic ones I buy seem to be tough, and not too amenable to using fresh. Though in cooking, after lots of de-stringing not too bad. I'd never have thought of using it in an omelet.

I really like celery but I never thought of using it in an omelet before-I don't know why not?! It looks delicious--especially with the mashed avocado on top. ;-)

It sounds like an interesting book too--I have not read many books set in Norway and I think I would find the details of his life there absorbing.

Have you thought about growing it in your garden? I honestly have no idea how difficult it is to do so. Having to buy a large amount at a time makes one think about various ways of using it. It has happened to me in the past to discard celery that had become too old and I don't like that. I also like the idea of moving to the foreground a vegetable that is usually in the background.

We are lucky to have easy access to good avocados: they seem to be able to bring up a notch any dish to which they are added. It is a really nice book and am now looking forward to reading more from the same author.


Fantastic recipe, I never thought to use celery in an omelette! I have made this twice already now and will make it regularly, thank you so much for sharing :)

Simona Carini

Thank you so much for your comment, Anu. I am glad to know you enjoyed the recipe :)
