Crisp, bright green peas are flavored with sesame oil and sesame seeds. The color is beautiful, the flavor is great and each serving has only 70 calories. We love peas, this could be a new favorite.
1 lb. sugar snap peas
2 green onions, white and light green portions, cut into slices 1/4 inch thick
1/2 tsp. Asian sesame oil
1 tsp. sesame seeds
Pinch of kosher salt
Trim the stems and, if necessary, remove the strings from the sugar snap peas. To
check if strings are present, cut or snap off a stem and then pull downward the
length of the pod.
Arrange the sugar snap peas in a steamer rack set over boiling water, cover and
steam until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes.
Transfer the peas to a serving bowl and add the green onions, sesame oil, sesame
seeds and salt. Toss to coat the peas evenly. Serve warm or at room temperature.
