RECIPE BACKSTORY
I loooooooove to munch on raw snap peas (and therefore rarely have any left to cook with). However, here's a quick way to cook them that's simple and quite nice- it's a great substitute for edamame as an appetizer. You can use white or black sesame seeds. Serve as a snack with drinks or as a side dish.
