Snow Peas, Yes Please!

4 May

Snow Peas I love snow peas. They are crunchy and can be eaten raw or simply done in a saute pan. Quick and easy side dish or for an entree, add brown rice (or regular rice).

Side Dish Version (or snack) – Heat in a skillet, two tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and two minced cloves of garlic. Remember, don’t let it burn! Garlic that is too dark is bitter. You can tip/tail the snow peas if you want but I don’t really care either way. Toss over medium-high heat until the snow peas are shiny and start to puff almost. Season with salt and pepper and serve warm.

I’ll be honest, the last time I tried to make the rice version, I ended up eating the snow peas while cooking the other parts of the meal…

Entree Fried Rice – For an easy and quick entree, remove snow peas from the pan but reserve some of the garlic. Add some shrimp and cook through. Add rice and season with salt and pepper. I like to add a sesame seeds too at this point too. Careful though, sometimes they fly out of the pan. If you want add a 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil and/or 2 tablespoons of soy sauce. Combine with snow peas and serve hot!

C’est si Yum!
