I love the fact that sugar snap peas have an edible pod. Other than snapping off the ends and removing that little string they are pretty much ready use. They are terrific eaten raw or served with dip. Sugar snap peas work well in any type of cooking and with an endless variety of ingredients. A great many members of my family, myself included really enjoy spicy foods. Here is a recipe that makes a great side dish to any meal. The natural sweetness of the peas in combination with the spiciness of the ingredients creates a unique and enjoyable flavor experience.
Spicy Sugar Snap Peas
1 lb. fresh sugar snap pea’s
Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat. When hot, add the mustard seeds. As soon as the mustard seeds begin to pop, add the garlic, then add the red chili and stir for a few seconds.
Put in the sugar snap peas and season to taste. Let cook for a few minutes until they have absorbed the flavor of the spices.
