Stuff & Nonsense: Snappy Peas

13 July 2014

Snappy Peas

I've harvested over a pound of snap peas! Yes, there would have been more than that, but many peas were diverted to my mouth on their way to my garden basket. Is there anything better then snap peas straight from the vine?

As The Husband is no fan of snap peas, I decided to cook mine in a way I'd most enjoy and then take them along to work for a few meals. Yes, snap peas perfectly lovely raw, but there's a limit to how hard I want to push my digestive system and, as I am quite capable of eating all the snap peas in one day, it seemed a Very Good Idea to cook them.
Easy Microwaved Peas and Onions

1 lb 6 oz snap peas, stemmed, stringed, and well rinsed but not dried
½ red onion, very thinly sliced
salt and pepper, to taste

Plop peas and onions in a large bowl. Cover with cling wrap. Microwave for three minutes. Stir 'round. Re-cover and microwave for two minutes more. Stir 'round, again. Season with salt and pepper. Eat immediately or allow to cool and package for the next day.
Peas were still a bit snappy at the 5 minute mark, but I was fine with that since they would cook more in the work microwave when I reheated them with Sunday's leftover chop.
