1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 scallions, trimmed, and cut crosswise into 1/2-inch thick pieces
1 1/2 cups sliced cabbage
1/4 cup sliced celery
1/4 cup bean sprouts
1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 tablespoon cornstarch, dissolved in 1 tablespoon cold water
Red pepper flakes, to taste
1/4 pound cooked vermicelli noodles

In a large heavy skillet heat the vegetable oil until it is hot but not smoking and in it stir-fry the scallions, cabbage, celery and bean sprouts for 3 minutes, or until the cabbage is wilted.

Add the sugar, broth, soy sauce, and sesame oil and simmer the mixture, covered, for 3 minutes. Stir the cornstarch mixture, stir it into the vegetable mixture, and bring the liquid to a boil.

Season to taste with red pepper flakes, if desired.

Add noodles and stir fry for about 3 minutes.

I made this recipe last night and it was awesome! I used the veggies I had on hand but for the most part followed your recipe exactly. I also added a little tamari. This was the first time I ever made an asian dish successfully.

Thanks so much!!!
