Chinese Stir Fry Celtuce ( Stem Lettuce)

(Last Updated on March 26, 2024 by Amiee)

Today’s stir fry celtuce ( stem lettuce)  is the same as the stir-fried greens before, just garlic chopped and celtuce. From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, most green leafy vegetables are cold in nature, plus hot garlic, just balance.

With its emerald green color and refreshing flavor, lettuce is hard not to be liked. The edible part was only one-third when you got a celtuce, that does not effect its status in the vegetable world.  It’s perfect for salads, hot pot, or meat dishes. I love its crispy texture more.

If you want something refreshing in the hot summer, come with a plate of stir-fried celtuce, you will love it.

Cooking Tip:

  • The stir-frying time should not be too long, up to two minutes or it will lose its crispy texture.
