No waste, celery leaves too.
Yes, they needed a little tidying up but 4 or 5 cloves of the not so fresh garlic was used.
At this point please then if you add the other two dried lime leaves and and a vegetable oxo cube and bring to the boil again.
Then simmer for only a minute or so and switch off the heat and put lid on saucepan.
Then your celery, the celery was cut to the very base of the celery leaves, the tops where there were not leaves on them were trimmed, then rinse the celery in cold water.
I had wanted to put the celery leaves of the celery into a jug of ice water maybe with some lemon but it was not necessary.
Cut the celery and cut it again, it may be a while but yes, even the stalky bits of the celery (as in photo/ but cut those too and add half to the saucepan and switch on the heat, bring to the boil and gently simmer. Slice your tomato and garnish, add some of the remaining celery and some of the celery leaves too on top.
You can eat the leaves too. Salute!
