Sweet and Savory Sugar Snap Peas
If you've never had sugar snap peas before, you are really missing out. They're kind of like the snow pea's sweeter, crunchier big brother. I created this Asian-inspired side dish to accompany tonight's pork chops. They were delicious! Mr. Ommy Noms is usually "eh" about veggies, but he was all over this dish.
An Ommy Noms Original
1/2 pound sugar snap peas, ends trimmed
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp dark brown sugar
1 clove garlic, minced
Dash red pepper flakes
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Add sugar snap peas and sauté until crisp-tender, approximately 5 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, combine soy sauce, sugar, garlic, and seasonings in a small bowl. Swirl to mix.
3. Remove peas from heat, add soy sauce mixture, and toss to coat.
