Sesame Peas and Carrots

sesame peas and carrotsI love anything with Panko bread crumbs. I have been making Pork Tonkatsu often because it reminds me so much of my beloved Pork Things.  I have made this recipe with green beans in the past, but it was nothing special, I wanted something new.  C is a huge fan of snow peas, Miss F likes them too, but she always tries to squeeze the 'peas' from them.  I had carrots leftover from C's birthday carrot cake, so this recipe was born.  It would work with any vegetable that can be stir fried quickly.  I also like to add Sriracha at the end to ensure Miss F will eat her veggies.
Sesame Peas and Carrots

2 teaspoons canola oil
1 cup snow peas
2 carrots, peeled and sliced
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil (I used spicy sesame oil)
2 teaspoons sesame seeds

In a wok or skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat.  Add the snow peas and carrots, saute, stirring often, for 3 to 4 minutes, until vegetables become crisp tender.  Pour the soy sauce over top and saute for a minute more.  Toss the peas and carrots with the sesame oil and sprinkle the sesame seeds on top.  Serve alone or over rice.
