Here’s a great spring recipe that takes only 4 minutes to make!
Kids love it, because they can open up the sugar snap peas to find sweet little green balls. Adding sesame not only tastes great, but also serves as an excellent source of manganese and copper, as well as calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc and dietary fiber. Sesame seeds reduce blood sugar and cholesterol. Most importantly, they’re delicious.
Sesame Sugar Snap Peas
1 T sesame seeds
3 c sugar snap peas (ends trimmed or snapped off)
1 t sesame oil
sea salt (preferably black Hawaiian sea salt)
1. In a dry saute pan toast sesame seeds until they are a nice golden color. Rinse peas in a colander.
2. Add peas to the pan, allowing the water on them to provide a little steam. Add a pinch of regular sea salt and cook, stirring often, for 2-3 minutes. Add sesame oil and stir to coat. Garnish with black sea salt. Enjoy!
