This is one of my favourite quick veggie recipes. It’s garlicky, salty, and a little spicy. Or a lot spicy if you like it that way. It’s a quick way to add some healthy and yummy green to your meal. Feel free to play with the amounts of the ingredients. I never measure anything for a recipe like this, so just do what seems right to you!
What you need:
- sugar snap peas (substitute with snow peas)
- sesame oil
- 2-3 cloves garlic
- a dash or two of soya sauce
- a dash of hot sauce (I used sriracha)
- a few dashes of your favourite vinegar (I usually use an Asian or balsamic vinegar)
What you do:
- Clean the snap peas and snap their ends off. Peel and slice the garlic.
- Heat a frying pan on medium heat and drizzle in a little sesame oil. Spread it around with your cooking utensil.
- Add the sliced garlic and cook briefly, carful not to burn it.
- Add the snap peas to the pan and cook briefly.
- Add some soya sauce, hot sauce and vinegar. Stir to combine with the snap peas. Cook for a minute or so, but not too long. The snap peas should still have a bit of crispness to them.
- Eat them up! Yum!
You could also garnish them with some toasted sesame seeds.
