    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!

    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!!!!

    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;-)
