Total Time: 20
Yield: 4 servings
Ingredients:1/4 cup slivered almonds
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 scallions, sliced thin
1 garlic clove, minced
1 pound sugar snap peas, ends trimmed
2 tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Instructions:In a small skillet over medium-high heat, add almonds and toast until golden brown, 5—6 minutes. Set aside.
Set a large skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil; when it sizzles, add scallions. Cook until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and continue cooking 30 seconds or until fragrant.
