This is a really simple and tasty side dish that goes well with all kinds of main dishes, especially Asian ones. The ginger makes a huge difference. I found this ginger juice at my local gourmet store, and keep it in my refrigerator as a staple. It tastes as good as fresh ginger, in my opinion, and is extremely handy. If you can’t find it, you could, of course, use a little grated fresh ginger instead (that would be even greener than using bottled, because you eliminate the factory that processes and bottles the ginger juice!) The brand I use is made by The Ginger People/Royal Pacific Foods, Marina, CA, USA, 1-800-551-5284, in case you want to go to great lengths to obtain it!
½ lb. snow peas
1 TBS water
1 TBS sesame oil
1 tsp soy sauce
splash of ginger juice
In microwave-safe dish (I use Pyrex, never plastic), put snow peas with about 1 TBS water. Microwave on high, covered, for 1 minute; stir; microwave for another 45 seconds. Let rest for a couple of minutes.
Add sesame oil, soy sauce, and ginger juice, toss together and serve.
