Sometimes, the best dish is the one you have no recipe for. The one you make when you want something quick and good, and you can throw it together in a matter of minutes.
My staple is a quick stirfry. I normally keep a pretty good selection of fresh vegetables on hand (which makes sense, being a vegetarian) and it literally takes about 3.2 seconds to have one on the table. My favorites are either a strictly vegetable stirfry, or I'll use leftover quinoa, and make a fried "rice" with vegetables.
The other day, I made that lovely Sesame Soba Noodle Salad, and I had some snowpeas left in the refrigerator. In the midst of my "cleaning out the pantry" day, I decided to make one of my most favorite snow pea dishes, Ginger Snow Peas.
I'm not providing a formal recipe, because honestly, this dish is so easy and can be changed in so many ways. But it's so fresh tasting, I just had to share.
I start with a combination of hot chili sesame oil and regular sesame oil in the bottom of my wok. Once that's nice and hot, I throw in some thinly sliced red onion. After a few minutes, I toss in some minced fresh ginger and garlic, stirring for a couple seconds. I then throw in the snow peas, and cook for a minute or so. (I love my snow peas to still be a tad crunchy). At the very end, I toss in some fresh lemon juice, stir a few more times, and remove from heat.
