YUM! Fast, simple and easy! We'll I guess trimming them is a little annoying but my kids were watching a show w/ popcorn so they were happy :) I will make again! I joined WW a few days ago so I reduced the oil (canola) to 1 tsp to make the recipe 3 Points total. Next time I will reduce the sesame oil to 1/2 TBS so the toal will be 2 Points. It had plenty of oil on them! Thanks even my kids enjoyed a few.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil or 1 tablespoon corn oil or 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 2 cups snow peas
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
  • salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste


  1. Put the oil in a 10- or 12-inch skillet, preferrably non-stick, over high heat. A minute later, add the ginger and peas and stir and toss occasionally, until they are lightly browned and their green color is vivid, about 2 minutes.
  2. Add the soy sauce and transfer to a platter. Add the sesame oil to the same pan and heat for about 10 seconds. Pour over the snow peas, season with salt and pepper, and serve immediately.
