- Incorporate carrots and cook for a further 3-4 minutes before finally adding the celery.
- Cover and cook over moderate heat for 25 minutes, or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Add a little water if necessary.
- Season with salt and pepper to your taste and serve.
