Place the peas and water in a microwave safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and puncture wrap for ventilation. Cook on high for 5 min or until the peas are crisp-tender. Let sit for 3 minutes then stir. Drain.
In a small saucepan, bring the vinegar and sugar substitute and bring to a boil over a med-high heat. Cook and stir constantly for 3 min or until mixture is reduced to 2 TBSP. Remove from heat.
Warm the oil in a large non-stick skillet. Add the bell pepper and garlic—cook for 2 min or until pepper is crisp-tender. Add the peas, salt, black pepper, and vinegar glaze. Toss to mix.
