Sauté Sugar Snap Peas with a Crunch!


1-pound sugar snap peas
splashes of olive oil
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1-2 cups raw/unseasoned sesame seeds
splash of cooking white wine
4 fresh green onions, chopped with tops
1/2-pound sliced fresh white mushrooms
Kosher Sea-Salt and Fresh ground black pepper, to taste


In a medium-size saucepan over medium heat, drizzle a little olive oil. When hot, add minced garlic and sesame seeds, toss to coat and sauté until lightly browned. Remove from pan and onto paper towel to drain. Set aside.

Clean pan with paper towel and drizzle just enough olive oil to toss and coat chopped green onions, adding in the sugar snap peas, sauté until sugar snaps are bright green, then add a splash of white cooking wine, along with sliced mushrooms. Add minced garlic and  seasame seed mixture, toss and coat well. Sauté until “crisp tender”, about 3-4 minutes and all the liquid is absorbed. Remove from pan and place into a glass bowl. You can top with raw sesame seeds if you like, and then salt and pepper to taste. Toss and serve! Enjoy!

This is A very good and A

This is A very good and A very light side dish and can also be served as a Salad. Even children love this and get their veggies also. Due to the Sesame Seeds, children "think" this is NOT really a veggie! A wonderful Dish!
