Snow peas stir fry

I had over stocked my fridge with veggies & these tender snow peas were one of those. I normally use snow peas in thai curry or stew & I had no inclination/ time/ coconut milk/ other veggies to make one of those usual concoctions. However, I also wanted to use these snow peas up. Thought will make an easy stir fry (was thinking of the edamame served in wagamama) and pulled out the pan. I am truly glad I tried this one out. One of those recipes where the time spent is very little but the taste is so good. My friend Jan always like this sweet-sour, sweet-spicy combo and just thinking of her I poured some maple syrup over before finishing the dish. God, that took this dish to a whole nice level. This dish takes under 10 minutes to make, very healthy, very tasty – what more reason are you waiting for before trying this one out??? 🙂 This week for me has been about making simple but elegant & tasty dishes. I love this week.

  • 1 cup tender snow peas
  • 1.5 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
  1. Trim the ends of the snow peas & wash them. 

  2. In a pan, throw in the snow peas along with a bit of water & sprinkle some salt. 

  3. Close the pan with a lid & let the mixture cook for a few minutes. 

  4. Within a maximum of 5-7 minutes, the snow peas will be cooked to a desired consistency (crunchy but cooked). At this stage, add some freshly cracked black pepper powder & some maple syrup. 

  5. Toss well & turn off the heat. Serve this along with some fried rice & gobble it up as is as a pre-lunch salad. Very tasty & healthy!

Recipe Notes
  1. The tender the snow peas, the better this dish is going to taste. 
  2. The sweetness of the maple syrup cuts through the heat of the black pepper & that's what elevates the taste of this dish. 
  3. You can replace maple syrup with any other sweetener of your choice - sugar, brown sugar, honey.
