NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon peanut or grapeseed oil
  • 1/2 large sweet onion, such as Vidalia or Maui, thickly sliced
  • 8 ounces snow peas, ends trimmed (about 4 cups)
  • 1/4 cup bottled all-natural kung pao, shiitake soy ginger or other low-sodium stir-fry sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped unsalted roasted peanuts or cashews
Directions

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.

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

Cook's 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.
