Sugar Snap Peas Side Dish

I love sugar snap peas and this great side dish graced my table over the past week.  I absolutely loved it and so did my non-pea loving family.  I can't wait to get some peas out of my garden so I can make this again.

Sugar Snap Peas Side Dish

  • 1-pound sugar snap peas
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • splash of cooking white wine
  • 4 fresh green onions, chopped with tops
  • 1/2-pound sliced fresh white mushrooms
  • Kosher Sea-Salt and Fresh ground black pepper, to taste

  • In a medium-size saucepan over medium heat, drizzle a little olive oil. When hot, add minced garlic and sesame seeds, toss to coat and sauté until lightly browned. Remove from pan and onto paper towel to drain. Set aside.
    Clean pan with paper towel and drizzle just enough olive oil to toss and coat chopped green onions, adding in the sugar snap peas, sauté until sugar snaps are bright green, then add a splash of white cooking wine, along with sliced mushrooms. Add minced garlic and seasame seed mixture, toss and coat well. Sauté until "crisp tender", about 3-4 minutes and all the liquid is absorbed. Remove from pan and place into a glass bowl. You can top with raw sesame seeds if you like, and then salt and pepper to taste. Toss and serve! Enjoy!Pin It
