Sesame Snow Peas Recipe

"I created this side dish because I like to use soy sauce and sesame seeds whenever I can," says Kathleen Valle of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. "I try to make all of my recipes simple and easy, and with only a few ingredients, this is a favorite."

  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

"I tried this using a bag of frozen sugar snap peas. It turned out really well. I used regular soy sauce and added a sprinkle of salt as well."
