  1. Yum! A bit like Moo Goo Gai Pan, which I just had Friday night.. ๐Ÿ™‚ Just need to use green onions!

  2. This really sounds good to me. What makes it even better is that it does not call for 10 plus ingredients.

  3. This would be so fun to make when we can find them at the farmers market. We love snap peas, so another good one to add to our to-make list:)

    • Yep—they would be great if they were fresh! I got some at the grocery store and they were those pre packaged ones and still were pretty darn good so I can only imagine what fresh would taste like. Yummmmm!

  4. Minus onion yummy!

  5. I’ve never tried to cook snap peas and I don’t know why. I do like eating them – a lot. I may buy some this weekend and give it a go. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Yum! I love sugar snap peas!

  8. Looks wonderful! You are making me hungry.

  9. A good one. I’ll just change the chicken broth to vege broth and it’s perfect for a vege meal. I love the simplicity of it.
