Preparation of stewed snow peas

  1. Take the snow peas, remove the ends, cut them into three or four parts then wash them thoroughly under cold running water and dry them with a clean cloth.
  2. Peel the onion and chop it finely. Brown in a saucepan over medium-low heat.
  3. When it is nice and soft, add the snow peas and leave to toast on a high heat for a few minutes.
  4. Then add the tomato puree or the peeled tomatoes previously mashed with a fork. Season with salt and dried chilli pepper to taste, continuing to cook for about 20 minutes over a low heat, covering with a lid.
  5. Once the time has passed, remove the lid, let the tomato thicken for a few more minutes and then sprinkle with freshly chopped parsley before serving this easy and delicious side dish.
