I love buying new, legit Thai cookbooks. They always inspire me to make Thai dishes I haven’t tried making, forgot about, or never heard of.
My recent favorite is True Thai by Hong Thaimee. One of my friends I met in Thailand recommended it, and I’ve fallen in love. The way she describes her recipes is so not intimidating, so I’m brave enough to give them a try and always love the result.
One of her simple, easy Thai veggie dishes I’ve made at least once a week lately is Thai Stir-Fried Sugar Snap Peas. All it takes is 5 ingredients: sugar snap peas, garlic, oyster sauce, sugar and white pepper.
And my two toddlers like it, and can’t keep their hands off them! Score!
I love that at our grocery store I can just buy a bag of fresh sugar snap-peas all ready to stir-fry, toss it in my wok with some chopped garlic, and a Thai vegetable side dish is done within three minutes.
Plus, all of the ingredients can be found at the normal grocery store, which is nice if I haven’t had time to make it to the Asian market. But if you do want the Thai brand ingredients I use, I’ve shared links in the recipe for you. 🙂

Sugar snap peas with oyster sauce is a super easy Thai veggie stir-fry that toddlers and adults love too!
- Have these ingredients in a bowl, ready to throw in all at once: the garlic, sugar snap peas, oyster sauce and sugar.
- Warm about 2 tbsp of cooking oil in a wok or large pan on high heat. Once it’s smoking hot, dump the ingredients into the wok.
- Stir-fry for about 2 minutes, more or less, until the sugar snap peas are bright green, and crisp, don’t let them get squishy.
- Turn off the heat and sprinkle on the white pepper powder to taste.
- Enjoy alongside any of your favorite Thai dishes with jasmine rice!
