Sunday Snapshots: Snow Peas

Happy Sunday! Today I’m sharing some overdue snapshots of snow peas and a little information about them. They are one of my favorite ingredients. What about you, do you like them?

Sunday Snapshots: Snow Peas

~Also know as Chinese snow pea, Chinese pea pod, sugar pea, mangetout, or edible-podded pea.

~Are a legume or variety of pea that is eaten whole and while still unripe.

Sunday Snapshots: Snow Peas

~They are flat, and thin with tiny seeds inside. The taste crisp is a tad bit sweet.

~Use as soon as possible. Otherwise increase their shelf life by storing dry and inside a perforated bag in the refrigerator.

~Snow peas are low in calories and contain Vitamins A and C, as well as iron and potassium.

~Can be stir fried briefly, sautéed or eaten raw.

Beautiful! One of my favorite things about Snow Peas is how quickly they cook. I often put some in a bowl with soaked rice noodles, some hot sauce and scallions before pouring on hot broth and eating them just barely cooked. They have such a great crunch and stay nice and green in the soup like that!

I like snow peas, but I never cook with them, ok, maybe one or twice-) I dont know why. They are so pretty and tasty. Thank you for amazing photos! Have a good evening!

OK, I love aubergines and artichokes and asparagus in spring, but snow peas in Oz arrive all year round and I simply cannot get enough! Usually stirfry, with heaps of garlic and oft oyster sauce; just a tad, ’cause they have to be absolutely crispy :) ! Whateveer else is on the plate, they are the stars – and one of the very few vegetables I let stand on its own!!!!

Absolutely beautiful!

Nancy, I never gave snow peas a second glance. And you made me admire them!

I don’t think so I know the snow pea, I would have remembered it. The green comes out so well with the dark background and the tiny water droplets are refreshing. I feel like cooking them right now!

So fresh and pretty-love the bright green color;-) I love snow peas-thanks for the recipes!
I like to slice them in thin strips and add them raw to salads for a little healthy crunch;-)
