Snow peas require no or minimal cooking. Blanching is ideal for brief cooking and retains the fresh colour of the vegetable.
1. Trim tips from snow peas and remove any strings.
2. Place trimmed snow peas in lightly salted boiling water. Cook over high heat 1 minute.
3. Remove from boiling water with a slotted spoon. Immerse in iced water to cool and retain their colour. Drain.
