What you need

    As many snow peas as you intend to cook, washed and with the stems removed
    Olive oil

Heat a pan or wok over medium heat. Not high; olive oil has a lower burning point than regular cooking oil. When the pan is hot, pour in the oil, about a tablespoon for each cup of snow peas. Stir them around to coat the peapods completely, then cover and let them cook, stirring about every 2 minutes to prevent burning. Let the pods cook until they soften, but not until they go limp. This takes about 15 minutes, but time may vary according to temperature and the maturity of the snow peas.
