Potato and celery stir fry

Today I want to share a simple potato and celery stir fry recipe, an original side dish that is a perfect match with meat, fish, eggs, and also with a salad for a light meal. The celery is commonly used in many stew and sauce recipes, as well as in the potato and celery soup. Those recipes require only a few stalks, so the potato and celery stir fry is a good way to accommodate the remaining celery stalks.


I like it because:

  • This recipe is perfect: healthy, simple, quick and cheap!
  • You can use different spices and herbs to vary the taste: pepper, crushed cilantro seeds, parsley, thyme, rosemary … you can also crumble 1/4 of broth cube over the vegetable before simmering.


  • The quantity of potatoes versus celery can be adapted regarding your taste.
  • Prepare this dish with unpeeled potatoes, so that they have more flavour and nutrients as well.
  • There is no need to add a lot of water during the cooking, a couple of tablespoons is enough.



  • 1 entire celery
  • 5 big potatoes
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Seasoning: salt, black pepper, grounded coriander seeds, crumbled 1/4 broth cube, …
  • Dry herbs: thyme, Provence herbs, rosemary …
  • 1 little bunch of fresh parsley

  • Clean the potatoes and cut them into small pieces, with or without the skin according to your taste.

  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet a couple of minutes and throw the pieces of potato and celery together.

  • Add the seasoning and dry herbs to the skillet, 2 tablespoons of water, cover and cook 30 minutes over low heat.
