3. Snow Peas As A Side Vegetable

The snow peas are a grateful and quick side dish.

The preparation is quicker than with beans vegetables.

Blanching is not necessary, you can steam the pods in a pan with butter.

This saves you time and energy and you still get delicious vegetables.

The pods are not only a nice side dish, you can also use them to prepare a fine vegetarian main course.

The fine pods can be wonderfully combined with potatoes and cauliflower.
