Snow pea pods.

I was cooking last Friday and asked the person who was doing shopping to get a pound or so of snow pee pods for won ton soup (my recipe). Well instead he got a whole box of it from restaurant supply place. I have no clue what to do with it. Any ideas?

If the PEA pods, are fresh, freeze them.

Eat them as a snack.
Add to salads.

As you probably already know, they have a stem/string that should be removed. Just take a paring knife and grab the stem between the knife and your them and pull. It will come right off. After that you can just throw them into the salad as it or you could cut them in half if you want.

A Chinese restaurant down the street makes a really good Wonton soup. The julienne pea pods and put those in the soup. It adds a great flavor without having to eat a whole huge pod.

I agree with all of the suggestions and can add one more. I often make a beef and broccoli style stir fry substituting the pods for the broccoli. Everything else can remain the same.

Hm, I kind of like the beef idea. But still, I have a huge case if the stuff. I probably will freeze it.
