I love me some sweet peas. ( and classic tunes 😉)
Scott and I picked up some snow peas at the market on Saturday. Usually I just steam them, but after seeing the mint in my yard, I started to get all creative and stuff.
So I took a bag of these babies…
And sliced them thinly. Fancy- pants word is julienne, but you can call it slicing thinly 😉
I gathered up some lemon, pine nuts,feta,butter, mint ,sea salt and pepper.
( not pictured… White wine)
And made a purty little plate
Start by toasting the pine nuts. Set aside.
I melted the butter ( a tablespoon, maybe?) into a cast iron skillet ( my favorite cooking vessel, btw )
Then I added the peas to coat and just start to wilt. I didn’t want to overlook them, a nice crunch was what I was going for .
I added the wine ( 1/4 cup-ish) and let it reduce by half, then added the zest and juice of the lemon, chopped mint , toasted pine nuts and seasoned with salt and pepper.
Right as I was ready to serve I added the crumbled feta ( we bought a local goat feta… Simply amazing!). And garnished with a bit of mint.
So simple, so tasty,so easy!
It went lovely alongside my linguini with roasted garlic goat cheese and zucchini dish.
( that recipe is coming up soon )
If you come across snow peas.. You should try this!
