Garlic Snow Peas with Cilantro
- 3 tsp canola oil, divided 15 mL
- 3 cups fresh (or frozen and thawed) snow peas, patted dry and trimmed 750 mL
- 4 medium cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 tsp salt 1 mL
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves 60 to 125 mL
- 1. Working in two batches, heat 1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of the snow peas; cook 3 minutes or until just beginning to brown on edges, using two utensils to toss easily. Add half of garlic and cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Set aside on a separate plate.
- 2. Repeat with remaining 1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) canola oil, snow peas, and garlic. When cooked, return the reserved snow peas to skillet; add salt and cilantro, and toss gently, yet thoroughly. Serve immediately for peak flavors.

Wild Rice and Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash
The sweetness of the apple here complements the delicate flavors of squash, celery and thyme. Canola oil's high-heat tolerance makes it an ideal choice for both roasting and sautéing in this dish.
