1 pound sugar snap peas or snow peas

1 tablespoon water

2 teaspoons canola oil

3 scallions, white and green, sliced

1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

1/4 cup orange juice

1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

2 tablespoons low-sodium white miso paste

1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil


  1. Place the snap peas or snow peas into a microwave-safe bowl with 1 tablespoon of water. Cover tightly and microwave for 3 minutes. Carefully remove the cover, drain and set aside.

Turn heat to low and stir in the miso paste and sesame oil. Stir until miso paste is dissolved, about 1 minute.
  3. Pour the sauce over the snow or snap peas toss to coat and serve.
