Cantonese side dish - Min Nam

My husband asked me to buy small celery leaves few days ago to blend and made it into paste to apply on his feet which has dead skin and developed into "chicken eye". It was such a coincidence that both of us bought the herbs and we had too much supply. So while blending the herbs, i found the texture and aroma is so similar to the cantonese side-dish which i had when i visited my family-in-love in bukit mertajam. So without giving a second thought. I gathered my pack of thin celery , few cloves of garlic and ginger.

Ingredients :
Celery
Garlic
Ginger
Soy Sauce
Spring Onion
Cooking Oil

Method : 
1. Blend celery and spring onion in thermomix by turning the knob to 10 for 2 second. Put it aside in a bowl.
1. Blend garlic and ginger in thermomix by turning the knob to 10 for 2 second. The garlic and ginger are nicely blended now.
2. Put some cooking oil into thermomix and varoma for 10 minutes at speed 2. Cook till you smell the nice aroma.
3. Open lid,, insert butterfly. Insert blended celery and spring onion. Add in soy sauce to preference. Close the lid and varoma it for 10 minutes, speed 2. 
4. When you hear the beep sound, open lid and check the mix. If satisfactory, pour out and scoop it using thermomix spatula. Leave cool and ready to serve.

I put in a clean jam jar and include it into our lunch box the next day. Its simply delicious.
