Snow Peas With Water Chestnuts

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Annacia

This is a simple veggie dish that goes well with almost anything. It looks nice enough for company or a holiday dinner. Fresh snow peas are the preference but frozen will work well too. 10 mins prep time is for frozen peas, fresh will take a bit longer.

Butter is not a great fat to use for stir frying due to it's low smoke point, and the typical practice of stir frying snow peas quickly under high heat. So I used half sesame oil and half canola oil. This gives the dish more of an Asian taste, along with the addition of a bit of diced fresh ginger. Otherwise, a great dish and easy to prepare.
