No Cheese Snow Peas

No Cheese Snow Peas were the winning contestant in a slew of names vying for the title of this recipe. They come together lickety-split and are downright addictive! I used to hate peas until I tried them cooked. Paired with a quick queso-like sauce? More peas, please.

Peas Out, Cheeze.

The last one never really had a chance. But which runner-up was your favorite? Or gave you the largest laugh?

The spices! And that little lemon is goin’ in, too.

Makes these for any reason, any season. They’re a great way to get kids (or adults) to try new ingredients! Now, I still don’t want the starchy green peas in my pasta. Nuh-uh. But snow peas are thinner and milder in flavor than the garden variety, which is called… the garden pea. Or snap peas, which you are likely more familiar with! 

No Cheese Snow Peas

Serves 2 as a side or 1 as a meal base*

  • 2 cups snow pea pods, fresh or frozen (180g)
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tsp miso paste
  • 2 tablespoons nooch
  • Big squirt of mustard
  • 1/4 tsp each: turmeric, black pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp unrefined cane sugar OR monk fruit sweetener/allulose**
  • Salt, to taste
  1. Heat a frying pan or nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add the snow peas.
  2. Whisk together the rest of the ingredients to form the cheeze paste.
  3. Once steam drifts from the peas, spoon in the sauce. Stir to coat.
  4. Turn up the heat to medium and cover. Cook for 2 minutes.
  5. Stir again, and serve!

*I say BASE meal because this is not sufficient in calories for a full plate. Add some tempeh bacon, cannellini beans, and/or veggie pepperoni! Have some garlic bread and/or baked potato fries on the side, too.

**Weird addition, right?! Don’t skip it. You can use agave or maple syrup, but the sauce needs that little sweetness to pair with the miso paste. The end taste results in a balanced bite.

NEXT, TRY: Cheez-It Kale Chips

In my short research of snow peas, I stumbled across this guy of the same name!

Here comes the airplane! Air-peas?
