As The Husband is no fan of snap peas, I decided to cook mine in a way I'd most enjoy and then take them along to work for a few meals. Yes, snap peas perfectly lovely raw, but there's a limit to how hard I want to push my digestive system and, as I am quite capable of eating all the snap peas in one day, it seemed a Very Good Idea to cook them.
Easy Microwaved Peas and OnionsPeas were still a bit snappy at the 5 minute mark, but I was fine with that since they would cook more in the work microwave when I reheated them with Sunday's leftover chop.
1 lb 6 oz snap peas, stemmed, stringed, and well rinsed but not dried
½ red onion, very thinly sliced
salt and pepper, to taste
Plop peas and onions in a large bowl. Cover with cling wrap. Microwave for three minutes. Stir 'round. Re-cover and microwave for two minutes more. Stir 'round, again. Season with salt and pepper. Eat immediately or allow to cool and package for the next day.
