Creamed asparagus and sugar snap peas

Easter brunch is around the corner. A quick an easy menu is exactly what you need to be in and out of the kitchen and enjoy such a fun day. Good bread, soft scramble eggs and a couple of fruit desserts are always a must for us, as well as a couple of comforting veggie side dishes using seasonal ingredients.

This year, for instance, we added asparagus and sugar snap peas to our grocery list. And the plan is to combine it with garlic, cream and herbs until it develops a sauce that can be dabbed with soft, warm bread.

It’s not super healthy, I have to say. But somehow having green veggies in the mix makes it all OK. Plus, it’s Easter! You can complement your brunch with a long walk in the beautiful weather to burn the calories away. Our recipe is up next.

Creamed asparagus and sugar snap peas – Ingredients: 
  • 3 Cups of fresh sugar snap peas
