Celery is a natural for the stir-fry technique because of its crisp texture. In this quick veggie side dish, it goes from stove to table in just minutes.
To stretch the dish, try adding cooked shrimp or chicken during the last 2 to 3 minutes of cooking.
Heat the canola and sesame oils in a wok or large skillet over high heat.
Add the celery and stir to coat the slices. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly, then add the ginger, garlic, and pepper flakes. Cook for 30 seconds more, then add the stock.
Cover the pan, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 2 minutes. Remove the cover, raise the heat to high and cook until the liquid is reduced to a glaze. Stir in the tamari and serve hot.
