Recipe

I am always on the lookout for new side dishes that are quick, interesting, and add some variety to my normal steamed or sautéed veggies. Adding new vegetables is one way to switch up the routine sugar snap peas are on of my favorites but you can also switch up flavors by changing out your oil and spices. This simple recipe makes use of sesame oil, a pinch of red pepper flakes, and sesame seeds instead of my normal go-to of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Make up a double batch and use the leftovers in salads, lettuce wraps, and rice bowls.
