Kung Pao Snow Peas

Stir-frying retains the sweetness and crunch of these low-calorie snow peas. A blend of soy sauce, ginger, chiles and sesame oil, store-bought kung pao sauce adds heat and flavor to this dish without adding a lot of fat.

1 tablespoon peanut or grapeseed oil
1/2 large sweet onion, such as vidalia or maui, thickly sliced
8 ounces snow peas, ends trimmed (about 4 cups)
1/4 cup bottled all-natural kung pao, shiitake soy ginger or other low-sodium stir-fry sauces
2 tablespoons chopped unsalted roasted peanuts or cashews

Heat a wok or large skillet over high heat and add the oil. Add the onions and stir-fry until just wilted, about 30 seconds. Add the snow peas and stir-fry until nearly crisp-tender, about 2 minutes more. Add the sauce and stir-fry to coat, about 1 minute.

Transfer to a platter or large bowl, sprinkle with the nuts and serve.
