My friend Mary gave me snow peas from her garden at Sunshine Community Gardens. She is a terrific gardener. Thank you Mary.

I decided to make a quick stir-fry. She requested the recipe and this is as good as I can do from memory.


  • 1/2 Tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 Tbsp. toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup veggie broth
  • 1/2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1/ 4 of a red onion cut in chunks
  • 1/2 cup raw unsalted cashews
  • 1/2 Tbsp. grated fresh ginger
  • 8 oz. snow pea pods


1. Whisk together soy sauce, sesame oil, cornstarch,  and veggie broth in a small bowl.

2. Heat vegetable oil in wok over high heat. Add onion and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add cashews, and ginger, and stir-fry 1 more minute.  Add snow peas and stir-fry 2 to 3 minutes more. Add soy sauce mixture, stir,cover and cook 1 to 2 minutes more, or until sauce has thickened and vegetables are coated with sauce. Stir once or twice.

3. Serve on Basmati rice.
