Balsamic Snap Peas

Snap Peas have become an obesssion of mine recently. Something about that first bite, or snap, has me coming back for more and more.

This recipe I threw together while staying with a friend. We are both avid gardeners so we threw in a few peppers from her garden and some cherry tomatoes from mine. There is nothing like cooking with food you grew from a seed!

Easy Prep and Little Mess!

I have also become obsessed with Le Creuset cast iron skillets. These things are the real deal! They heat up fast and even. I’m also surprised by how easy it is to clean. I will be asking for one of these next Christmas.

This recipe is extremely versatile. Make as a side or serve these snap peas with a cup of whole grains and you’ve got a healthy meatless meal! It’s a great low-sodium, vegan/vegetarian, gluten-free option and a good source of fiber as well! Hope Y’all Enjoy!
