This is one of my go to meals when time is at a premium. The whole recipe for sugar snap peas, tomatoes and potatoes can be made in about 10 minutes. Yet, the flavor is full and my family loves it.
Sugar Snap Peas, Tomatoes & Potatoes
Now that the vegetable garden has started producing garden peas, this recipe gets used often for us!
Normally, I cook this with just sugar snap peas and tomatoes but I had some roasted potatoes left over from last night when I made my roasted root vegetables, so I added them as well. They made it into a very different dish which is a bit more hearty but still garden fresh. Would also be lovely with new potatoes.
All that is needed for the dish, is just a very quick saute of the sugar snap peas in olive oil and butter and then add the cut tomatoes for the last minute or two. Stir in your cooked potatoes until well combined and serve. What could be easier.
What I love most about this dish is the color! It is so vibrant.
