Tasty Tuesday: Potsticker "Salad"

This meal started with a recipe that I found in Real Simple magazine and ended up Natali-style if you will. Not to be cocky, but I think my way was better. So, here is the tweaked version:

Here's what you need:
1 lb bag of frozen potstickers
2 medium carrots, chopped into circles
1 1/2 cups of bean sprouts
2 cups of sugar snap peas, cleaned and de-stringed (I bought stringless)
1/2 cup of low sodium soy sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 scallions, chopped
1/4 cup chopped peanuts
2 packages of ramen noodles (this is my personal addition)

Prep your ingredients first. I used a food processor to chop the peanuts quickly.

Fill a large sauce pan or lidded pan with 1/2 inch of water, allow to boil. Add the potstickers and simmer covered for 4 minutes (I turned the heat down from high to medium-high).

*Do you best to keep your kid happy long enough to finish making dinner!*

Add in the carrots and snow-peas. Cover and simmer for 4-6 more minutes or until vegetables reach the tenderness you prefer.

(Here is where I took off from the actual recipe- their version would have left the remaining water- what do I do with that? And called for serving the hot stuff over the raw sprouts and tossing with the remaining ingredients).

While vegetables cook, boil water for the ramen noodles. After the noodles begin to soften, add the bean sprouts. Allow to simmer for 2 minutes.

Drain the noodles, sprouts and potsticker mix.

Pour the soy sauce and sesame oil into the warm pan that you were using for the potstickers. Allow to bubble. Add in all strained ingredients and toss in scallions and peanuts. Stir fry over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes.

Voila! Not so much a "salad", more Pot Sticker Stir-Fry. I don't know why it was called a salad, but it was tasty!
