+ 3 tsp. canola oil, divided (15 mL)
+ 3 c. fresh (or frozen and thawed) snow peas, patted dry and trimmed (750 mL)
+ 4 medium cloves garlic, minced
+ 1/4 tsp. salt (1 mL)
+ 1/4 -1/2 c. chopped fresh cilantro leaves (60-125 mL)
What to do:
1. Working in two batches, heat 1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of the snow peas; cook 3 min. or until just beginning to brown on edges, using two utensils to toss easily. Add half of garlic and cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Set aside on a separate plate.
2. Repeat with remaining 1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) canola oil, snow peas, and garlic. When cooked, return the reserved snow peas to skillet; add salt and cilantro, and toss gently, yet thoroughly. Serve immediately for peak flavors.

Serving size: 1/2 c. (125 mL)
