Just omit it if you don't like it. I love it.

3 part shallots
2 part bell peppers
1 part celery
1 part garlic

Depending on the dish green onion added at the end

50% chopped onions
25% chopped celery
25% chopped RED bell peppers
Garlic to taste depending on dish

I quit using green bell peppers a long time ago. They tend to be bitter and they give me indigestion.
The garlic is purely on a per dish basis, some are better than others with more garlic in them. I find a pork roast needs a lot of garlic in the gravy, beef not as much.

It's all personal preference, but I go heavier on onions and celery than most people. I usually go 3 parts onion & celery and 1 part bell pepper.

I have a question. I really dislike the taste of celery, would substituting be a total sin? What could I sub with?

You won't get that celery taste when it's cooked down. Don't hesitate to cook with it or in stocks. Celery is rich in umami. It just adds depth to your stocks and sauces.

America's Test Kitchen agrees with you. They recommend red bell peppers for better flavor.

I use both. I like a little bite from the green and a little sweetness from the red.

depends on the dish, I like more BP in redbeans, I like less celery in etouffee. 2:1:1 is basic I guess.

Mirepoix is another story

Not a big celery fan so I often leave it out:

2 yellow onions
1 bunch green onions
1 red bell pepper
garlic

edit: The red bell pepper not only tastes better but it breaks up the green combo of green onions and green bell peppers for nicer color.

1 onion
1 bell pepper
4-5 stalks of celery

Assuming they're all decent sized, it probably works out to 40% onion, 35% bell pepper and 25% celery.

For most things I make a double batch, so double my trinity above.

1 onion
1 bell pepper
1/2 bunch of celery
2 cloves garlic.


Whenever I chop it up I always chop extra and put it in the freezer.

I agree. I sub orange and red for green all the time.

Looks really good in Jambalaya also.
