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.

INGREDIENTS
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

DIRECTIONS
1.  Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat until shimmering.  Add sugar snap peas and saut√© 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.
Pin It!
