Stir-Fried Snow Peas, Red Pepper and Shallots

This colorful vegetable combo is quick and easy to prepare. The crispy, crunchy snow peas are a nice complement to grilled meats and fish as well as a variety of Asian-inspired dishes.

  • Ingredients:
  • 1 lb fresh snow peas, ends trimmed
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 large shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
