Stir-Fry Celery with Ham

A quick, easy, crunchy and tasty vegetable dish. Just two main ingredients! Yes, that's right, just two ingredients. This dish is really, extremely, easy to prepare in a flash! Try this dish. It is crunchy and salty, absolutely delicious with a bowl of white rice.

Stir-Fry Celery with Ham
Ingredients :
5 to 6 celery stalks
3 to 4 slices of chicken ham
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 tsp chicken seasoning
2 tbsp oil
1 tbsp water
pinch of salt

Method :
  1. Clean and cut celery stalks to 2 inch sections and cut to julienne strips .
  2. Slice ham to julienne strips.
  3. Heat up 1 tbsp oil. Stir-fry ham until light brown and fragrant. Dish out and keep aside.
  4. Heat up 1 tbsp oil. Saute chopped garlic until fragrant. Add in celery strips and stir for a minute. Add 1 tbsp water, chicken seasoning and a pinch of salt. Stir for another 2 minutes.
  5. Add the ham and stir till evenly mixed. Dish out to serving plate. Enjoy!
(For a crunchy taste, do not fry the celery too long. Stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes, just long enough to cook the celery and remain crunchy at the same time. Carrots can be added in, cut to julienne strips and stir in together with the celery.)

  3. I never thought of slicing my celery lengthwise. It's always slanted. I love eating celery but don't know any other way of preparing them other than stir fry with carrots. Will certainly try out this recipe!
