Pea Salad

Shirley’s Sautéed Pea Salad

Add or customize with your favorite ingredients!

The Ingredients we prefer:

  • 1 Tsp                  Diced or Chopped Garlic
  • 2-4 Tbsp            * Coconut Amino’s (soy sauce substitute)
  • ½ tsp                    Oil of choice I prefer a spicy hot oil
  • ¾ cup                   Frozen peas
  • Salt, Pepper, Red Pepper Flakes to taste

Makes 1-2 individual servings


  1. In a small saucepan heat garlic, oil & coconut aminos over med heat
  2. When the garlic is browning add the peas.
  3. Cover and shake your pan to mix.
  4. Stir occasionally until peas are thawed 3-5 minutes
  5. Pour over salad.

I’ve found by mixing the warm peas it makes the salad savory and more filling making it seem more like a meal.

Be adventurous! You can stir fry any combination of veggies you would like.

By using the Aminos in place of most of the oil you can eliminate a huge amount of unnecessary fat! 2 Tbsp of the Hot Oil is 14g of fat I cut that amount to 3.5g of fat for 2 servings. (You can find these in the soy sauce section at WinCo, Bragg’s Aminos is another great sub. option)

I get my dressing from WinCo I like the Bolthouse Farms, Creamy Yogurt Caeser dressing, at 2.5g of fat, it is a tasty low-fat option, as dressing in general is where we sometimes get into trouble! You can find this in the produce section.
