Oh Boy, Oh Boy, Snow Peas

Fresh snow peas are one of my seasonal favorites and they are nearly ready. We grow Oregon Giants. Our favorite recipe is Sesame Baked Tofu With Snow Peas and Almonds from the Moosewood Restaurant Kitchen Garden cookbook. It's one of our June/July special treats.

Yes, it is a tofu recipe, one of the very best! If you are not a tofu fan the meal is almost as good made with chicken. The combination of grated fresh ginger root, sesame oil and rice vinegar creates an unusual taste that must be repeated. I'm sure there are other great recipes for snow peas, but my attempts to serve anything else are met with expressions of disappointment. I better check my supply of ingredients because snow pea season starts tomorrow.
