1/1 Photo of Sugar Snap Peas With Pine Nuts and Garlic
Recently, my area experienced a blizzard that knocked out power for almost a full day. While I had my gas stove for cooking, I didn't have access to the internet to search for recipes. I had to resort to sifting through my cookbooks. I found this method for preparing sugar snap peas in the Perfect Vegetable cookbook by Cook's Illustrated. The veggies are crisp and bright with the depth and earthiness of the pine nuts and garlic. Great side dish.
