Very Simple Sauteed Snap Peas
Author: 
 

I got this trick from a Cook’s Illustrated magazine years ago – when you add just a sprinkle of sugar to peas as you sauté them it really brings out their natural sweetness… This is just the most delicious way to enjoy sugar snaps!
Ingredients
  • 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 2 c. snap peas, stems & strings removed
  • ⅛ tsp. sugar
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions
  1. Heat butter in a cast iron or non-stick skillet over high heat until foamy.
  2. Toss in peas, sugar, salt & pepper & cook, tossing peas a few times, just until bright green & caramelized in a few spots.
  3. Eat immediately. Serves 2-3.
