Yesterday I finally “harvested” 29 snow pea pods from one of my raised gardens. While it was just barely enough for two side servings with tonight’s dinner, I was happy to finally get something from our garden beyond mint, chives, scallions, and baby greens!
Heat 1 tsp. sesame oil over medium heat. Saute 1 tsp. thinly sliced ginger for several minutes, until it becomes fragrant. Then throw in the snow peas and a few sprinkles of crushed red pepper. Saute several minutes, just until the peas turn bright green if you like crisp, sweet pea pods.
*This recipe is for about 1/4 lb. of sugar snap peas. Increase accordingly if you garden is kinder to you!
