Funny, Tuesday morning we were all ready for our foot nurse who is always on time or even before,
This is turning out to be a medical blog, sorry about that. One of the problems when one gets older, or at least for many of us.
I am usually on the lookout for snow pea recipes and came across this one which I thought I would share. I thought it was a rather unusual combination.
Sesame Snap Peas with Carrots and Peppers
The colorful combination of sugar snap peas, red bell pepper and carrot plus an Asian-inspired flavors make this side dish a pleasure to whip up for a weeknight dinner.
8 oz sugar snap peas, trimmed (about 2 cups)
1 small red bell pepper, cut into strips (about 1 cup)
1 large carrot, peeled and thinly sliced (about 1 cup)
1 Tbs reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 Tbs toasted sesame oil
1 tsp sesame seeds
freshly ground pepper, to taste
1. Place peas, bell pepper and carrot in a steamer basket over 2 inches of boiling water in a saucepan. Cover and steam, stirring once, until crisp-tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
2. Toss with soy sauce, oil, sesame seeds and pepper.
Have a great day
