I can’t decide if these are pancakes or patties as there doesn’t seem enough flour in them to make them pancakes. Don’t really think it matters though as it still a great way to eat vegetables.
With the emergence of celeriac as a popular vegetable, celery is often now overlooked. The two are different vegetables although from the same family. Celeriac is not the root of the vegetable you buy called celery, it is a plant cultivated for its root or base instead of for its stalk or leaves like celery. Sadly I think celery is now very overlooked. I use it in salads, casseroles and it’s great with cheese, but had forgotten about using it as a main element of soup until I found this recipe. Try it and see what you think…………. (You could substitute rice or risoni for the sago.)
I can’t decide if this is a chowder or a minestrone soup with lots of cheese. For some strange reason it reminds me of a soup Mum used to make with grated onion, carrot, celery and chicken noodle soup which she covered with water and when cooked added some milk to – don’t think there was ever a recipe for it, but it was one of my favorites especially when I was sick.
Vegetarian recipes weren’t something Mum would have been looking for on the pages of the Herald Sun. Growing up I can’t remember anyone among our family or friends who didn’t eat meat, so cooking vegetable only dishes just wasn’t necessary. This recipe is on a page Mum kept from the paper that had pork, lamb, sausage and fish casseroles on it, so the recipes were around, they just weren’t something Mum made.
