1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons slivered almonds
12 lb snow peas, trimmed (about 3 cups)
1 tablespoon fresh mint leaves
NOTE: for a more Asian flare, use a little bit less butter and add some toasted or regular sesame oil. If using frozen snow peas, thaw first. Melt butter over medium heat and lightly brown the slivered almonds. Add snow peas, fresh mint and 2 tablespoons water. Cover pan and cook 2-3 minutes or just until snow peas are crisp-tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
