The Perfect Veggie Side Dish – Sesame Snap Peas
We all know that it’s a good idea to incorporate more vegetables into our diets, but sometimes it gets difficult to come up with a good veggie side dish recipe that isn’t bland. After a while, no matter how much you season them, steamed or roasted vegetables can get boring. These Sesame Snap Peas are a yummy change of pace and taste great along side so many main dishes.
You won’t regret keeping the simple soy sauce mixture recipe handy, because you can use it on a multitude of other vegetables. Try it with carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, or even a mix of vegetable to add extra flavor.
A delicious change of pace from steamed and roasted veggies. Packed with flavor, this sauce is amazing!

- In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, garlic, ground ginger, and 1 tsp sesame oil.
