Gingered Celery with Almonds is a Crowd-Pleaser

This is a unique side dish that beautifully complements baked chicken and steamed rice—a crowd-pleasing trio that will not disappoint.

2 tablespoons butter
⅓ cup slivered almonds
½ cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon powdered ginger
2 teaspoons soy sauce or tamari
                                          4 cups diagonally sliced celery, about ¼-inch thick

    1.     In a medium sauté pan over moderate heat, melt the butter. Add the slivered almonds and sauté until light brown, stirring often. (Watch closely to make sure they don’t burn.) Add chicken broth, dried minced onion, garlic powder, ginger, soy sauce or tamari, and celery. Stir to combine the ingredients.
     2.     Cover and decrease heat to medium-low and cook for about 10-20 minutes or until celery is tender, stirring once or twice during the cooking process. Serve immediately.
