Sesame Snow Peas and Peppers

I served this simple and delicious side dish with the Spicy Basil Chicken and brown rice – it was a really terrific combination of flavors and textures.   I love that a side dish can be so quick and simple to make yet taste so fresh and delicious.  I loved the crisp-tender veggies with the sesame flavor… they were so good and healthy!

Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the snow peas and baby bell pepper to the skillet and cook, stirring often, for 4-5 minutes.  Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.  Serve immediately.  Enjoy.
