Snap Peas With Ginger and Garlic

Ginger and garlic, one of heaven’s pairings. This time, I used them to make a quick lunch, combining them with snap peas, tamari sauce, and sesame oil.
Most soy sauces have wheat in them, so you have to choose a wheat-free soy sauce, which is often labeled “tamari” in the American market. But that doesn’t mean all tamaris are gluten-free; in fact, I have seen some that contain wheat. Make sure your bottle of tamari explicitly says “gluten-free.”
Do these snap peas look a little wrinkly? That’s because, once cooked, they are! If you see photos of cooked snap peas that look perfectly green and smooth, then they’re stylized, not real. Just like people, real ones have some wrinkles!
