The Princess and The Snow Pea
There once was a Princess who loved to cook.
I she was growing up, my her family had a huge garden and my her favorite thing that was grown were snow peas. Each time the delicate plants produced enough peas to host a large side dish, I she was out there finding the hidden pods, ready to make my her signature dish, sauteed garlic ginger snow peas. I The Princess had a bit of an obsession with those succulent green beauties. It was wonderful having them grow abundantly in my her family’s garden, just waiting to be picked and eaten.
It had been a while since
I’ve she’d lived at home but my her recent trip back home reminded me her that it was time to throw snow peas back into my her life.
This dish is exactly what
I she would make for my family and it’s every bit as tasty as I she remembers. Only slightly missing the extra love from the ones I she used to eat it with.
Sauteed Garlic Ginger Snow Peas
- Fresh snow peas, washed and de-stemmed
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Fresh garlic, minced or crushed
- Fresh ginger, minced or crushed
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Extras: sweet white onions, leeks
Heat oil in a large skillet. Add the onions and leeks, cooking until softened. Add all of the remaining ingredients, sauteing the peas until tender but still slightly crisp, about 10 minutes.
If you’re feeling like filling your body with nourishing greens, like this Princess was, serve the snow peas with red quinoa, more sauteed onions, and a large green salad.
After eating all of her greens, the princess turned into the most beautiful ruler of the
kitchen lands. She still resides in the Land of Lori, making nourishing and delicious foods. Happily eating her way through life.
