I went into Brookshire’s yesterday on the hunt for a vegetable we don’t usually eat.
In my family, that could be almost anything, thanks to two very picky eaters. I feel like we corner the market on green beans, salad greens, cucumbers and tomatoes, but the rest of our vegetable diet falls woefully short (I practically live off of spinach and Brussels sprouts when I eat alone or only cook for myself.)
So when I went in search of something different, but something that the men in my life would eat, I happened upon Mann’s Family Favorites when I had nearly given up and was in the refrigerated section with the bagged salads.
Packaged in an eight-ounce bag, these stringless sugar snap peas were fresh and crisp and would have been great as a snack right out of the bag (I made a note to buy more for school lunches).
At just 35 calories a cup, they are high in potassium, vitamin A, Vitamin C and iron.
They’d be delicious in salads, stir frys or on party platters.
I sautéed them in a tiny bit of olive oil with minced garlic. The garlic was the perfect sweet compliment to the peas.
