Sesame-Roasted Snap Peas

I served these with dinner this week, and even my vegetable-hating husband liked them!

Sesame Roasted Snap Peas

1 pound sugar snap peas, trimmed
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon black sesame seeds

Preheat oven to 475° F

Toss snap peas, sesame oil, and salt in a bowl. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet.

Place in the oven and roast, turning halfway through, until snap peas are tender and lightly browned, about 10-15 minutes.

Toss with sesame seeds and serve.

Notes From Green Thumb Farm 7/3/15

Happy July - Our crops are coming in now!  Beets - Red, Gold and Chiogga; Carrots - baby orange, red, and rainbow; fennel, two types of Radichio, red and white onions all have started to come in this week.

Still picking peas, (mostly snaps) summer squash has begun and now picking 15 types of lettuce and all sorts of herbs. - So plenty to choose from to bring in the next several weeks.
