To prepare, simply heat up some oil in a wok or pan, add garlic and ginger for flavor, and then toss in the snow pea leaves. A few minutes of stir-frying is all it takes to cook the leaves to perfection. Serve as a side dish to a stir-fry or enjoy as a light and refreshing salad.

  • 1 pound snow pea leaves
  • 3-5 cloves of finely chopped garlic
  • 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon of sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt (or to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of white pepper


  1. Put the snow vegetables in a big bowl or other container and fill it with water. Let them sit for at least an hour and up to two. Then, give it a good two or three washes to remove any remaining sand or dirt from the leaves and stems. Get rid of the water completely.
  2. Warm the oil in the wok over high heat until it begins to smoke. As quickly as possible, add the garlic and vegetables, taking care to avoid burning them through a lack of constant stirring. After a minute, incorporate salt, freshly cracked white pepper, and sesame oil. Mix it all together and make sure there are no lumps.
  3. Cover the wok and let the food cook for a minute or two. Take it out of the container and give it a quick stir before serving.
  4. Warning: removing the lid more than once will cause the green color of the vegetables to fade.
