snow peas

This simple recipe is one of my favorite easy side dishes. These snow peas are delicious warm, and the leftovers are great cold the next day too.

I’ve always preferred my veggies lightly cooked, with added butter. They’re easier to digest, and the butter allows you to absorb the nutrients more easily from the vegetables.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter grassfed, or coconut oil
  • 1 pound snow peas
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Pinch sea salt

Instructions

  1. In a skillet over medium heat, melt butter.  Peel and crush garlic, add garlic, snow peas, and sea salt to the melted butter.
  2. Keep on medium heat, and stir every minute or so for 5 minutes, or until peas just start to turn bright green.
  3. Remove from heat and serve, peas will continue to cook a bit even after you remove them from heat.  The key to these snow peas being good the next day too is to not overcook.
