Carrot, Celery and Onion Ragout

By the wlr team

This tastes sweet and delicious. Satisfying enough to serve as a single accompaniment to grilled chicken, fish or meat.

    per serving


  • 400g carrots
  • 1 red onion
  • 6 celery stalks
  • 20g butter


  1. Peel the carrots and onion. Then slice the celery, carrots and onion.
  2. Melt the butter in a heavy pan over a low heat.
  3. Add the vegetables to the pan and stir until coated in butter. Add pepper to taste.
  4. Cover and cook over a very low heat for 30-40 minutes until the vegetables are tender. The idea is to 'sweat' the vegetables rather than fry them. Shake the covered pan frequently to make sure they don't stick!
