Dill Potatoes & Sugar Snap Peas

Sometimes the tastiest recipes are the simplest recipes! This next recipe is pretty simple but makes for a perfect side dish! 






I was inspired by the beautiful scenery around me to experiment with pictures. So I have quite a few to share for today's recipe. 
____________________________________________________________

Start by slicing up a small bag of mini red potatoes in half. 


Next, boil your potatoes for a few minutes in order to soften. This will aid the cooking process. You can either place in a microwave safe bowl with water and microwave for 5 minutes or boil on the stovetop for a few minutes until they soften. Do not cook all the way through. You want them to soften but still hold their shape.

Place your slightly boiled potatoes in a skillet coated with two to four tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. Add one bag (approximately two cups) of sugar snap peas, 2 tablespoons of dill weed,  sea salt and pepper to taste. Cook on medium heat for 15-20 minutes until potatoes are fully cooked and browned. You can cover the skillet to allow the potatoes to cook a little faster. 

Remove from heat and serve!
