The Perfect Veggie Side Dish – Sesame Snap Peas

We all know that it’s a good idea to incorporate more vegetables into our diets, but sometimes it gets difficult to come up with a good veggie side dish recipe that isn’t bland. 

After a while, no matter how much you season them, steamed or roasted vegetables can get boring. 

These Sesame Snap Peas are a yummy change of pace and taste great alongside so many main dishes.

You won’t regret keeping the simple soy sauce mixture recipe handy, because you can use it on a multitude of other vegetables. 

Try it with carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, or even a mix of vegetables to add extra flavor.
