Stir Fried Sugar Snap Peas are easy to make in minutes with a few simple ingredients. They’re a healthy side dish the whole family will love. And this recipe is naturally vegan, gluten-free, and oil-free.
Whenever I go to Asian restaurants, I love ordering vegetable dishes.
There’s something about they way they’re able to bring out the flavor and texture of the vegetables without overpowering them.
I decided that sugar snap peas would be the perfect veggie to benefit from minimal seasoning and a simple cooking technique.
Sugar Snap Peas nutrition
Sugar Snap Peas are a good source of iron, vitamin C and vitamin A.
Plus I think they’re very delicious.
But don’t worry if you can’t find them at your local market.
This recipe would be equally tasty using snow peas or green beans.
And if you do buy snap peas and have some extra, I love them in Spicy Coconut Soup.
A delicious side dish
I really enjoy this vegetable side with these other Asian-inspired recipes:
But I wouldn’t be opposed to serving them with just about anything!
Making Stir Fried Sugar Snap Peas is really easy.
Simply saute the snap peas in a little water until they are tender.
Then add a little fresh minced garlic, rice wine vinegar, and tamari.
That’s all there is to it.
I like to serve them topped with some toasted sesame seeds.
And if you have leftovers, you can enjoy them hot or cold the next day.
