Garlic Snow Peas with Cilantro


  • 3 tsp canola oil, divided 15 mL
  • 3 cups fresh (or frozen and thawed) snow peas, patted dry and trimmed 750 mL
  • 4 medium cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp salt 1 mL
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves 60 to 125 mL


  • 1. Working in two batches, heat 1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of the snow peas; cook 3 minutes or until just beginning to brown on edges, using two utensils to toss easily. Add half of garlic and cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Set aside on a separate plate.
  • 2. Repeat with remaining 1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) canola oil, snow peas, and garlic. When cooked, return the reserved snow peas to skillet; add salt and cilantro, and toss gently, yet thoroughly. Serve immediately for peak flavors.
