I normally use snow peas in a pancit or any kind of noodle recipe. The crunch of the snow peas very much accommodate the softness of the noodles. I haven't tried them without meats, too. That's just because I feel they won't taste as good without pork or chicken. However, when I tried cooking snow peas with nothing more but broccoli and tomatoes, they turned out quite nice. I maintained the peas' crisp; plus the broccoli florets provided the softness that I was looking for from the noodles.
Here's what I did:
Ingredients in cooking snow peas with tomato and broccoli:
- snow peas, cut lengthwise in halves
- broccoli, cut not chopped
- spinach, washed and cut (optional)
- tomatoes, cut in 2 halves
- garlic, crushed and chopped
- onions, cut
- oyster sauce
- fish sauce
- cooking oil
- hot water
Steps in cooking snow peas with tomato and broccoli:
1. Saute' the garlic in a pan with hot oil.
2. When the garlic turns golden, add the tomatoes.
3. Crush the tomatoes as you stir to really bring out their juices.
4. Season with a dash of salt and pepper.
5. Add the onions. Stir well.
6. Put some water to prevent the dish from drying out.
7. Lower the heat and cover the pan to let it simmer.
8. Add the broccoli. Stir well.
9. Add the snow peas. Stir well.
If you have spinach, add in the stalks as well. Put in the leaves last to avoid over-cooking.10. Season the dish with oyster sauce, fish sauce and pepper.
11. Cover the pan and let it simmer further.
At this point, the tomato's sauce would blend in with the thickness of the oyster sauce.12. When the vegetables cook, remove from pan and let it cool without the cover.
13. Serve with hot rice.
