Grilled Celery with Truffle Oil

Preparation Time: 0:20
Cooking Time: 0:05

10 large celery stalks, each 12” long

2 Tbsp. olive oil

kosher salt

2 Tbsp. pine nuts, toasted

About 1 tsp. black truffle oil

1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar

1 small chunk Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese


Preheat a gas grill to high.

Peel the fibrous outer layer from the celery stalks with a vegetable peeler. Cut each stalk into three 4” lengths. Put the celery in a large bowl and add the olive oil and a pinch of salt. Toss to coat evenly. Place on the grill, cover, and cook until slightly tender and grill-marked, 2-3 minutes per side.

Transfer the celery to 6 small plates and arrange in a stack on each. Sprinkle with pine nuts and a little salt. Drizzle with the truffle oil and vinegar. Shave an equal amount of the cheese over each portion. Serve.
