Celery with Sesame

Serves 4

Besides going well with other Japanese foods, itís also good munched on when cold. Try it as a topping for tofu.

To crush the sesame seeds, place them in a ziploc bag and roll with a rolling pin until they are crushed.

  • 4 stalks celery
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp. sake
  • pinch of Splenda
  • 4 tsp. soya sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. sesame seeds, lightly toasted and crushed
  • ground dried chili peppers

String the celery (no you donít have to but it makes a better dish!) and cut each piece into 2-inch segments. Cut each segment into lengthwise 1/4-inch strips.

Heat the oil in a frying pan over high heat and add the celery. Stir fry until just tender, about 1 minute. Add the sake and Splenda and stir until the liquid has evaporated. Add the soy sauce and stir until the liquid is almost gone. Stir in chili pepper to taste. Transfer to a dish and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
