A nice combination of flavors for peas and sugar snaps. I especially think the sesame oil added a nice touch, as did the ginger. It was easy to prepare, quick, and fairly low-fat. I will make this again.

A different and unique combination of ingredients that made a delicious stir-fry. I love peas too and got fresh sugar snaps and snow peas from our green grocer--yum. The ginger and red pepper flakes gave the dish wonderful flavor. I used two cloves of garlic. Thanks for posting this recipe.

Veggie heaven for me! I left out the ginger since dh doesn't care for it, added extra garlic and extra soy sauce, and didn't bother to slice the sugar snaps or snow peas. Crisp veggies w/ a light sauce. Mmmmm.
