Sautéed Snow Peas (Mangetout) with Green Garlic — 8 Comments

  1. Happy Easter Katie, do they do chocolate on Easter Sunday in France, and hot cross buns on good Friday as we do here.
    Of course it is Monday here and the weather is lovely. Getting more summer in our dpdll than we have had the rest of the season. Hope spring is nice for you

  2. I know it’s bad but I am not a big pea or bean eater but those recipes look tempting. I often put peas in a risotto or soup but buy frozen ones.

  3. I only ate snow peas once before I arrived to the U.S. from Serbia and I was not impressed (it was the preparation method, not the peas:). And now we love them! I happen to have a big bag of them in the fridge left over from a stir fry a few nights ago, and I am really happy when I saw this recipe on Facebook:)
    Thanks, and have a great day!

  4. Zoomie, and Happy Easter to you, too! And all the rest.
    Gilli, yes, lots of chocolate…. and omelets on Monday. Happy Easter to you.
    manningroad, I normally use frozen peas, too but the little pods are delightful. But I love all legumes.
    Marina, it does, doesn’t it?
    Lana, snow peas are great and not used nearly enough – and too often over-cooked.

  5. Isn’t it amazing that you can’t buy sweet corn? We had French friends visiting in the height of corn season and got the best sweetest just picked corn for them to try. She politely tried it; he refused, saying he wouldn’t eat cattle food. Ha. The joke was on him; there was more for the rest of us.
    I’ve started to prefer sugar-snap peas to snow-peas. They’re sweeter and keep their shape better. Not that I’ll turn down snow-peas mind. And certainly not if they were stir-fried as above with green garlic.

  6. Elizabeth, I have started seeing pumpkin and winter squashes here in the last few years – they used to be pig food. And they do put sweet corn on pizza. There’s hope!
