Once the snow has disappeared, and you can work the soil, snow peas are a seed you can start right into the ground.
As soon as they are ready to harvest, I love making this quick stir fry. Of course, sometimes I have trouble picking enough of them – my children snack on them raw right off the vine! If I’m lucky to get any, this is one of the things I make.
Fresh Garden to Table | Sesame Snow Peas
2 tbsp sesame oil
1 lb (approx) fresh snow peas plucked right from your garden (washed & string removed)
1.5 tbsp sesame seeds (lightly toasted)
3 cloves of Canadian garlic (preferably local!)
2-3 cups bean sprouts (to taste)
1 tbsp soy sauce
- Heat sesame oil in a wok over med-high heat.
- Toss snow peas for approx 2 minutes.
- Add bean sprouts and garlic. Toss/cook for another 2 minutes until the snow peas are crisp, yet tender.
- Sprinkle on sesame seeds and drizzle on soy sauce.
- Serve immediately.
Feel free to add in fresh asparagus as well, it's also delicious in this recipe.
