Stir-frying retains the sweetness and crunch of these low-calorie snow peas. A blend of soy sauce, ginger, chiles and sesame oil, store-bought kung pao sauce adds heat and flavor to this dish without adding a lot of fat.

Directions

Notes

Using an all-natural bottled sauce bursting with flavor makes this side so easy--and so pleasing. Select a sauce that has less than 400 mg sodium per serving.

Step 1

Heat a wok or large skillet over high heat and add the oil. Add the onions and stir-fry until just wilted, about 30 seconds. Add the snow peas and stir-fry until nearly crisp-tender, about 2 minutes more. Add the sauce and stir-fry to coat, about 1 minute.

Step 2

Transfer to a platter or large bowl, sprinkle with the nuts and serve.
