Sweet Garlicky Glazed Snow Peas

Guess what. This baby is literally due in 1 MONTH! Can you believe it? Because I can’t. In just one month, we’re going to be parents. It’s absolutely crazy stuff. We’ve been stockpiling baby stuff like diapers and crib sheets and all sorts of things we’ve never used before, which makes for pretty difficult decision-making.

Now I guess it’s time to practice making our child eat her veggies by creating simple and delicious recipes for them, right? Okay. Maybe it’s a little early, but there’s no way anyone could turn their nose up at these glazed snow peas because they’re perfect. In every way. Fresh, green, with the perfect amount of crunch and sweetness.

You can totally substitute other vegetables in this recipe if that’s what you have. I’ve made half broccoli, half snow peas before and they turned out just a great. Just make sure to chop the vegetables so they’ll all cook in the same amount of time.

On a side note, I can’t ever remember the difference between the different types of peas, so we when I realized how great this recipe turned out I actually had to look it up. Anyway, these are snow peas. They’re the flat ones. Hopefully I won’t forget now.

    I always mix up snap peas & snow peas (…or are they the same thing?). And green beans. And any other bean that is green and has a pod. I don’t know why it’s so hard to keep track of them! Anyway, this sounds like a really simple and delicious preparation of snow peas. 🙂

    I am the same way forgetting the different kind of pea names. Well, I’d be happy if this was the only thing I am forgetting these days 😉
    Your peas look scrumptious. I want to bite into one and hear that awesome crunch.
