I really like these little things. So much that they didn't even make it to our actual dinner plates. Cam and I just stood around the dish I had transferred the peas to, chatting, eating these with our fingers as soon as they were out of the hot pan. That's how I know something's good - if I eat it standing up.
These snap peas are healthy, flavorful, fresh tasting and super quick. Extra points for being a green vegetable.
