Simple Snow Peas Recipe with Chili and Garlic

Snow peas are so versatile you can season them with just about anything. For this chili garlic snow peas recipe, I only used a few ingredients:

  • Chili Onion Crunch: This is a spicy chili oil I got from Trader Joe’s with onion pieces. It’s delicious. You can use any chili oil, though. There are many options at our local Asian Market, so check out yours. You can also order some by clicking here.
  • Minced Red Onion: I love red onions. Jon and I put red onions in pretty much every savory dish. They add a fresh flavor to these snow peas.
  • Kimchi Brine: We used the liquid from our Cultured Guru Kimchi. This adds a lovely tart and salty flavor to the mix.
  • Garlic: We’re from Louisiana, so, of course, we add extra garlic to all the things.
  • Toasted Sesame Oil: For me, this is the star ingredient. Sesame oil is the flavor fat that combines all the delicious flavors mixed in these snow peas. You can use any oil, but the flavor of toasted sesame oil is the best.

Gut Healthy Snow Peas Recipe

Snow peas differ from regular garden peas because the whole green pod is consumed. This means you consume a lot of healthy dietary fiber when you eat snow peas.

Since you eat the whole pod, snow peas also contain more vitamins, minerals, and other plant nutrients than shelling peas. Trust me, good gut microbes love all that fiber packed in snow peas.

Alternate Seasonings Recipe for Snow Peas

I’ve made these snow peas with a few different flavor combos. One of my favorites is lightly steamed snow peas with lemon juice, olive oil, and cajun seasoning. You can also try things like Mediterranean seasoning or Greek spice blends.

Things to Pair with Chili Garlic Snow Peas

These snow peas are perfect for a solo snack but also make a great side dish. Try them alongside these Tandoori Tofu Coconut Rice Bowls or as an appetizer before this Kimchi Miso Ramen.
