Simple Sugar Snap Peas

This recipe, originally from allrecipes, was contributed by past Root Radical crew member Josh. Instead of shallots, Josh used a garlic scape olive oil that he blended in his food processor.

Sugar snap peas can be substituted for snow peas; just make sure to check them frequently to make sure they don’t burn!
