Snow Peas with Ginger

A snappy-quick, easy vegan side dish for any night of the week.

Trim the ends off three cups of fresh snow peas.

Heat one and a half teaspoons of sesame oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add the snow peas, along with 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger. Saute for three minutes.

Remove from heat and add 2 tablespoons soy sauce and a dash of black pepper.

Voila! Four, 1/2 cup servings of only 40 calories each.

Told you it was quick and easy! Colorful, too.

ginger $0.35
snow peas $4.14

p.s. One more vegan note on the night. One of my bigger fears of becoming vegan was the idea of giving up ice cream, but I was delighted to discover a thriving market of soy "frozen desserts" which taste, if not as good as the real thing, then - in my humble opinion - even better. Last night was the first time I tried the Soy Dream brand, so I want to highly recommend it! My other favorites are the "ice cream" from Whole Soy and that from Turtle Mountain.
