Umami-licious Japanese Celery Stir Fry

Oh. My. Gosh! Have we got a winning recipe today! Love the umami of Japanese food? Love a hit of chilli? Looking for a wholesome, comforting winter side dish that won't weigh you down?

Poor Celery. His leafy green crunchiness is often relegated to "diet food" or seen as a "part" of a dish such as in soups, stuffing, salad, etc. He is rarely the star. This recipe, inspired by Nancy Hachisu's Japanese Farm Food cookbook, provides a simple celery stir-fry with chili, soy sauce and sesame oil.

Like many things- the whole provides a MUCH greater outcome than the parts individually. Fair warning! This dish may go into your regular rotation!

What You Need:

What To Do:

  1. Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan over high heat.

  2. Add the celery and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the soy sauce and stir-fry one more minute. Drizzle with sesame oil, sesame seeds and chilli flakes. Serve hot or at room temperature in a pretty bowl or platter.

That's it- simple, seasonal, made with whole foods and completely umami-licious!
