My mother made these all the time when I was growing up (she still does!), so credits for this recipe belong to her. All I did was create proper measurements and cook time, since, of course, which one of our mothers has that?

 

I love the versatility of these sesame snap peas. You can throw them in the oven for a while, and come out with softer, more roasted snap peas, or pull them out earlier for a crunchy, satisfying dish.¬†They don’t just make an easy side dish. This recipe is perfect for both Shabbos, Yom Tov and during the week. It’s even great as a healthy snack!

How to make Sesame Snap Peas

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

 

2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

4. Add toasted sesame seed oil, toasted sesame seeds, salt and garlic powder. (Note: I do not toast the sesame seeds before baking. However, my mother insists that it tastes much better when they are pre-toasted. If you have the extra couple of minutes, do it! Bake the sesame seeds for 8 minutes at 350 degrees, watching carefully so they don’t burn.)
