celery & red pepper braise

6 stalks celery
2 red peppers

cut celery & pepper into 1/2 - 1 pieces. Saute in a bit of olive oil, sprinkle w/ salt. Sprinkle lightly w/ chili powder & oregano. When starting to soften, add 1/4 - 1/2 cup chicken broth, sliced garlic, bay leaf, and braise until soft and liquid has evaporated.

very nice with some crumbled strong english cheese.

The most amusing part of all this is that for years I loathed celery AND peppers, but in the last 2-3 years I have come around to liking celery altogether when properly prepared, ie, not in tuna fish salad, and to liking red peppers. I will NEVER EVER like green peppers, except when cooked well to death in olive oil and served with a large spicy italian sausage.
