    I was not the biggest fan of these. I love snow peas, but they were a little too sweet for me.

    A year ago I had to begin a new way of eating: gluten free, sugar free, dairy free, AND only 40g of carbohydrates a day. As you can well imagine, I quickly ran out of recipes I liked AND am able to eat. What a blessing Taste of Home has been!!! I found this quite tasty and satisfying recipe in early February and have made it three times already! I use fresh, local, organic snow peas, carrots, and garlic. To replace the butter (dairy free) I used 2 tsp refrigerated bacon drippings. Unfortunately, I must omit the honey (sugar free). For just a tad more taste I use 2 TBSP Low Salt, No Sugar Soy Sauce. This recipe is so tasty that most of my ten grandchildren like them and have asked me go give my daughters the recipe! But since I live alone, when the children are not here, I still cook one pound. I eat one serving fresh, refrigerate two serving for later in the week, and freeze two servings for the next week. I was uncertain about freezing snow peas at first. However, though they are not quite as crisp after freezing, they are still very tasty. And since I buy from an organic produce co-op, one pound is the least I can buy each two week. I’ve used these as my vegetable with chicken and brown rice (only 2 TBSP) and other times with sirloin patties and brown rice pasta (again only 2 TBSP). I never thought such diet restrictions as I’ve had to make could possibly leave room for such a variety of great taste, much less thoroughly enjoying my favorite hobby… cooking! But all you imaginative cooks who so joyfully share your recipes, as well as, Taste of Home have made this journey quite an exciting adventure! Thank you all!
