Spicy Sesame Sriracha Sugar Snap Peas

Sriracha Sesame Sugar Snap Peas – Perfect for Spring!

It’s that time of year when everything is green and there are vibrant springy colors everywhere! I have bright green chives already in my flower boxes, my tulips are blooming and my raspberry canes are full of leaves. I can’t wait to get my herbs and veggies planted this year! In the meantime, I’m cooking a lot of Sriracha Sesame Sugar Snap Peas!

Sesame Sriracha Sugar Snap Peas are a quick and easy side dish or even a snack, perfect for spring! I like to cook up extra to snack on while dinner is cooking. Sugar snap peas are sweet, crunchy, and delicious. They are great to snack on right out of the bag too.

My Garden Goodies

The only unfortunate part of spring is the feral cats trying to use the vegetable garden as a litter box. Luckily “husband” has a (humane) solution for that! It’s scarecrow season! We have a motion-activated sprinkler called “The Scarecrow” that works great! I can’t find the version I have on Amazon, but it’s similar to this. To see mine in action here’s a cute video of me trying to turn off the scarecrow so I can grill dinner! *To use a motion-detected sprinkler you will need a hose hooked to it 24/7. If you are worried about your water bill, it may not be a solution for you. We keep an eye on it to make sure the connections are tight.

Red Swiss Chard

I’ll be planting the usual zucchini, summer squash, green, yellow and purple beans, tomatoes, peppers, swiss chard, eggplant, herbs, and after a successful experiment last year, more cucamelons! They are a delightfully tangy, grape-ish snack with a hint of watermelon flavor!

What are you planting this year?

One of my favorites to grow on the patio is potatoes! The flowers are pretty cool too! They look like eggplant flowers, light purple with a yellow center. Have you ever grown potatoes? If not, they are fun and easy! I use these grow bags but I’m thinking of upgrading to these larger ones with two flaps! I think kids would LOVE growing potatoes! For a quick easy microwaved little red potato recipe, try my LRP’s recipe!

Sriracha Sesame Sugar Snap Peas

Stir-Fried Sugar Snap Peas

Sriracha Sesame Sugar Snap Peas

For an easy and very tasty snack or side dish, try sauteeing or stir-frying a pan of sugar snap peas in sesame oil, then add a dash of salt and sriracha, or gochujang.
Variations: *Use soy sauce in place of salt. *Skip the sesame oil and use garlic-infused olive oil.
I like to double the recipe and snack on these while I prepare the rest of the meal! These are great hot or cold!

  • Cook for one to two minutes. I like to cook them until they get a bit browned or some char.
  • Using tongs or a spatula, flip them over and cook two minutes longer, or until desired doneness.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the sriracha or gochujang, and garlic powder, and sprinkle in salt (or soy sauce).
  • Serve hot or cold. I love these with extra sriracha and black sesame seeds on top when I have them!

I started eBookFoodie in 2018 as a hobby, to quiet a nagging voice inside my head to be creative and to be more productive. It went live in January 2019. I’ve always been hesitant to post about myself or my life, but when it comes to recipes and books, I find that I enjoy it! I especially like posting recipes inspired by books that I’ve read, and recreating family favorites!
