JULY 2, 2019
Greetings everyone! Yup – finally summer. It’s hot and humid and still doing a lot of raining. This, of course, may be uncomfortable for people, but it’s great for vegetables.
This week we’re getting one of our most popular vegetables – sugar snap peas, so delicious, they don’t always make it into a recipe at our house. We just pull the strings and eat them.
And you must remember to pull the strings, too. Just break off the stem and gently pull the strings down to the other end of the pod.
SUGAR SNAP PEAS WITH GARLIC AND PANKO
1/2 lb sugar snap pies, washed, dried and trimmed
1/4 c panko bread crumbs
1/4 grated parmesan cheese
1 TBS grated garlic, dried minced garlic or chopped fresh garlic
3 TBS olive oil or olive oil infused with your favorite herbs (widely available in supermarkets and groceries)
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
2. Mix the panko crumbs, the parmesan cheese and the garlic.
3. Toss the peas with the olive oil
4. Toss the pea mixture with the bread crumb mixture
5. Spread on a baking sheet and roast for 15 – 20 minutes
HELPFUL HINT – you may want to use a sheet of parchment paper to line the baking sheet. It will make cleanup much easier.
Have a wonderful, fun-filled and safe July Fourth holiday. And have a delicious week!
