Sesame Snow Pea and Noodle Stir Fry Recipe
Washed, raw snow peas are a great and versatile snack and a delight in a quick high-temp stir fry or blanched and rough chopped in salads. For this quick stir fry, use snow or snap peas. If adding a protein, sauté quickly in batches on high heat until browned and almost done, set aside and add in with peas.
