This fragrant dish of tender celery and leeks incorporates a bit of vanilla extract into the flavorful braising liquid.



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Layer the celery and leeks in a baking dish. Add the chicken broth, butter and vanilla extract. Season with 1 teaspoon salt and a couple turns of pepper. Cover with foil and braise in the oven for 30 minutes. Uncover and cook until tender, about 20 minutes more. Top with the celery leaves.
