Snow Peas with Pine Nuts and Mint
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.
