Ingredients

4 ribs celery, cut diagonally into 1/3 slices

1/4 teaspoon celery seeds

3 tablespoon all-purpose flour

1 cup milk

Salt and pepper

1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest

2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Directions

  1. In a heavy saucepan, cook the celery in the butter over moderately low heat, stirring, for 3 minutes, or until it begins to soften. Stir in the celery seeds and the flour and cook the mixture, stirring, for 3 minutes.
  2. Add the milk in a stream, whisking, and salt and pepper, to taste and simmer the sauce, stirring, until it is smooth and thickened. Stir in the zest, the lemon juice, and the Brussels sprouts and simmer the mixture, stirring occasionally, until the Brussels sprouts are heated through.
