7 Minute Snow Peas

Our CSA started up again at the beginning of the month and we’ve been loving all the super fresh veggies in our lives again. With the freshness (and therefore delicious-ness) of such fresh veggies we don’t like to do too much to them in terms of cooking and let the veggies shine through! Last week we got a little pint of snow peas and we knew just what to do with them. These 7 minute snow peas obviously cook quickly and are just so easy to make, too.

Dice about 1/4 of a red pepper and chop 1 or 2 cloves of garlic depending on your taste.

Heat about 1 teaspoon or 2 of oil in a skillet over medium high heat and add garlic when oil has heated up. Once you smell the garlic add the snow peas and red pepper in and cook for about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Serve warm. Your snow peas will be slightly crunchy and oh so flavorful – enjoy!

Halibut with Roasted Beets

I’m giving you another recipe this week! Must mean one thing…it’s CSA season and we’re getting tons of random vegetables that we’re scouring the internet for interesting recipes to use them all. Today I bring you what to do if you have tons of greens (like kale or swiss chard) and beets, as we had earlier this week. I found this recipe on Martha’s site for Halibut with Roasted Beets and it was great. Healthy, satisfying with interesting flavor combinations – tangy mustard, sweet golden beets, and tart greens.
