Sauteed Snow Peas and Cabbage

snow peas and cabbage

Fresh from the soil

Those fresh snow peas! We picked up snow peas at the local Farmer’s Market, and by lunch time, half of them were already devoured raw. My plan to stir fry these beauties went out the window. Then I decided to slice and dice cabbage and onions and add them to the mix.

You can do this in a wok or a skillet. All you need is some olive oil and sea salt and the vegetables. Slice your cabbage into thin strips, your onions into thin slices, and put the snow peas on whole. To make this dish, I put olive oil on my cook-n-dine and then put all the vegetables on together. Children who turn up their noses at cabbage and snow peas will like this dish. Ask me how I know!

I’m certain other combinations of vegetables would work as well. Perhaps you could add thinly sliced carrots.  Use fresh snaps (green beans) instead of snow peas, thinly-sliced carrots for color, or try multi-colored peppers. What I liked about this dish is that I used produce fresh from the garden, giving me a dish with a fresh-from-summer flavor.
