Snow Peas With Peanut Sauce
Recently, I found snow peas in the supermarket, far below the normal price. I couldn't miss it. Actually, when I bought it, I planned to cook it with olive oil. But then whatever happened, I went astray. Stuff like this happens from time to time. Whether you are a guest or a host, you eat what you find, not what you expect. What is written on one's forehead happens, neither one step forward nor one step back.
Long story short, my dear, I craved something spicy and nutty like something from Thai cuisine. As I had snow peas at my hands, the ingredient that would meet with hot spice and peanut was clear. I also supported it with onions and peppers. The flavor was amazing. Normally, I try to try the recipes I will share a few times before, but this is a very simple recipe. If I do it ten more times, I will do it the same way. That's why I took pictures and took notes while I was cooking it.
Although it is not as light as Turkish style snow peas, it is light compared to many dishes, and despite its lightness, it is a delicious dish in a rare way. You have several options for serving it. The first is to eat it just as it is. Since it is a satisfying meal with the support of peanut butter and peanuts, if you are not extremely hungry, you can just be satisfied with the dish. The second option is to serve it with rice pilaf. It's a pretty classic way of serving it. The last possibility is to serve it with lavash by making a wrap as in aspava.
It's awesome in all three ways. If you ask how do you know, let me explain. While it was cooking, I tasted it abundantly, I know how it tastes plain. I cooked rice along with it. I ate it with a bowl of rice. Unfortunately, I was not satisfied. I mean, I was actually full, but I enjoyed it so much that I didn't want this pleasure to end and I also made lavash rolls. I had wonderful experiences from this event. I know very well how the meal is with rice and lavash. Of course, from time to time, I have to make such sacrifices for the work I do.
