Herbed Snow Peas with Leeks recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

The snow peas at the Farmer’s Market were irresistible this week. I love adding snow peas to my stir fry dinners and they can be a great side dish as well. I had a small leek in the refrigerator and I decided to saute it with the snow peas for a very simple side dish.

Just a few minutes in the skillet resulted in a dish of crisp hot snow peas with tender leeks, fresh herbs and a sprinkling of salt and pepper.

    This is the first I've hovered for awhile, but I still absolutely adore your food blog. I hopped on over here for your crockpot oatmeal recipes. Thanks to you and several other food sites I'm getting ready to get rid of most of my cookbooks; they're just clutter.

    Just a quick question – as I was reading what you keep in your pantry – Are you a Costco shopper? I'm quickly becoming a convert because so much of what they offer is organic. I like to peruse sites like yours for ideas of what to do with my bounty.

    I love to eat snow peas – one at a time – with my fingers. Why I don't know! But I like the idea of combining them with leeks – very nice!

    Looks very good Mary. We grow snow peas on the fence arond the garden and put them in lots of dishes but can't remember having them as their own dish, but now I know how – not that I think of it, we do the game with English peas.
