  • Meal

    Side Dish

  • Cusine



2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1/2 pound snow peas, rinsed, dried, tips of the ends cut off, strings removed

1/4 cup pine nuts

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 teaspoon dark sesame oil

10 large mint leaves, chopped


Sauté snow peas, garlic, pine nuts: Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium high heat. Add the snow peas, garlic, and pine nuts. Stir to coat with the oil. Cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring. You do not want to overcook the snow peas or they will get limp. They should still be a little bit crunchy. Remove from heat. Stir in the sesame oil and chopped mint leaves. Serve immediately.
