Stir Fried Snow Peas with Mushroom

Monday, March 7, 2016

Snow Peas are my boys favorite vegetables. I usually buy it from Trader Joe's or if it is in season, then you can find it at local farmer market. My friend's mom taught me how to trim and cook this veggies otherwise I wouldn't know what to do with it. Thank you, Bobo!

The series of pictures below showed two different peas: snap peas and snow peas. Snap peas is chunkier while snow peas is thinner. You can use either one of them.

 Stir Fry Sweet Peas

Rinse the peas then trim the end from each snow or snap pea and pull the string down the pod. Repeat at the other end, pulling the string from the other side. If snow peas are young, they don't have strings, so just trim the ends. This will take a while so look for a head activity to do while doing this. Just make sure you don't cut your finger :)
 How to cook Sweet Peas
You can use any other kind of mushroom. I just love this beautiful Portabella:

Saute the onion, garlic, and mushroom

Add the snow peas and the rest of the ingredients.

Cook about 5 minutes or 'till the snow peas are soft and ready to eat {how do you know? just take a bite or two or three}

That's it!
