Easy Sautéed Sugar Snap Peas with Garlic and Shallot
This simple recipe is my favorite way to cook sugar snap peas. They are crisp, perfectly flavored and so easy to make in under ten minutes. All you need is one pan and a handful of basic ingredients to wow everyone with this seasonal side dish.
- Heat oil in a 12-inch, non-stick skillet (I love cast iron for this recipe) over low to medium heat. Add the shallot, garlic, salt, chili flakes and black pepper and saute over low to medium heat for 3 minutes until fragrant and translucent.
- Add the sugar snap peas and sauté for 3 minutes. Do not overcook them - they will continue to cook after you take them off the heat.
- Optional: Toss with sesame seeds and/or hemp hearts if using.
- Serve immediately and enjoy while hot. Garnish with more sesame seeds if desired.
