Prep time 10 mins
Cook time 7 mins
Yield Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups trimmed fresh sugar snap peas (about 5 oz.)
  • 1 1/2 cups trimmed fresh snow peas (about 6 oz.)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon pomegranate or cranberry juice
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon black or regular sesame seeds
  • 1 cup frozen baby English peas, thawed

How to Make It

  1. Arrange sugar snap peas and snow peas in a steamer basket over boiling water. Cover and steam 1 to 2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Plunge peas into ice water to stop the cooking process; drain.

  2. Whisk together soy sauce and next 5 ingredients in a large bowl.

  3. Heat sesame seeds in a small nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, stirring often, 4 to 5 minutes or until toasted and fragrant. Add hot sesame seeds to soy sauce mixture, stirring until blended. Add sugar snap peas, snow peas, and thawed English peas, tossing gently to coat. Serve immediately.
