Celtuce is the supermodel of vegetables!
It belongs to the lettuce family, hence also known as Chinese lettuce or asparagus lettuce and is one of the most delicious and easy to use vegetables!
It has a long pale green stalk, somewhat similar to broccoli, which must be peeled to reveal a surprisingly crispy, delicate, smooth interior. The leaves, even though they can be used, tend to be quite bitter.
Extremely versatile, it can be eaten raw, grilled, roasted, sautéed, pickled. Its flavor is smooth with a touch of nuts and a slightly smoky aftertaste. Cut into thin pieces it is excellent in salads as it replaces any other crunchy vegetable such as radish, cucumber or carrot; laminate makes fantastic noodles; or lightly sautéed just to enhance its flavor.
It plays perfectly with both Asian and Mediterranean flavors, namely walnuts, lemon and olive oil.
Despite its unusual appearance, celtuce is yet another unique and powerful product that deserves all our respect!
