Water Chestnuts, Sugar Snap Peas,
and Shiitakes

Makes 4 servings

 

Crunchy, salty, and sweet, this quick stir-fry takes advantage of fresh vegetables by treating them simply. A hint of ginger and a splash of soy sauce are all you need.

  • 3 tablespoons grape seed, corn, or other neutral oil
  • 6 fresh small shiitake mushrooms, trimmed
  • 4 wood ear mushrooms, soaked in water for 1/2 hour,
         then drained and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon peeled and minced fresh ginger
  • 1/2 cup peeled and sliced fresh water chestnuts
  • 1 cup sugar snap peas, strings removed and ends trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • Salt

Water Chestnuts, Sugar Snap Peas, & Shiitakes

1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, ginger, and 1 tablespoon water and stir-fry until browned and softened, about 2 minutes. Then add another tablespoon oil, the water chestnuts, and 1 tablespoon water and stir-fry for another minute. Add the remaining tablespoon oil, the sugar snap peas, and 1 tablespoon water and stir-fry for another 2 minutes.

2. Season with the soy sauce and salt to taste and serve.
