  1. Whisk together the soy sauce and cornstarch in a bowl until cornstarch is completely dissolved; set aside.
  2. Prepare a skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat; drizzle in the sesame oil. Place the snow peas and carrots in the skillet; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Pour the broth over the vegetables. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low; simmer until vegetables are slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the soy sauce mixture; continue to cook until the sauce has thickened.

An alright recipe, but I don't think it had much flavor. I definitely added some extra soy sauce.

I don't know if I read something wrong, but 1 tsp of cornstarch does not dissolve in 1 tsp of soy sauce - it makes a paste. And once you have snow peas in your skillet, it's near impossible to then mix that paste with the broth in the skillet, so you just get small bits of soy sauce paste scattered in your skillet. Or at least that's what happened to me.

This was pretty good. I prepared it as written but next time I'll add some ginger and garlic to the pan before adding the peas/carrots. As per Salser713, I'll also add sesame seeds when serving next time. I had no problem mixing the soy with cornstarch as did jen55. However, it would be easy, with no change to the taste, to combine the soy, cornstarch and broth and add it to the pan all at once. There's no need to make it 2 steps. I'll make this again according to my notes above. it's good to have simple recipes like this on hand

Nice easy recipe. I julienned the carrots as I was in a hurry. The only thing I did differently was to sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds over the veggies when they were done. Thanks!

Very, very good! We have snow peas coming in from the back yard garden. My husband also pulled a couple of leeks when he picked peas. I sliced that and stir-fried along with the peas and carrots. Not sure how much flavor that added since I have never made this before. But it certainly did not hurt!

This is really good. I added a little salt and pepper and I used a little more sesame oil (love the taste of it), but this was really a great side dish. My husband loved it!!!

I absolutely love this dish. I agree with some of the others & I added ginger, minced garlic, & a lil garlic powder to the dish while cooking. I also added some soy sauce to my bowl.

This was a very nice quick veggie side with an Asian flair. We had found some beautiful snow peas at the store and could not pass them up. Did not know how I was going to fix them until I stumbled across this one. Instead of carrots I used a can of water chestnuts which complimented the sauce and still gave you some crunch and crispness to the dish.
