Sublime Eats: Skinny Bitch Roasted Sugar Snap Peas - A Completely Guilt Free Treat

I whipped these up in the kitchen recently and now call these the Skinny Bitch Roasted Sugar Snap Peas: no doubt, eating these will help you get into a pair of size zero white skinny jeans and fool you into believing that you are noshing a huge bowl of fattening Chinese take out. These sugar snaps are virtually guilt free and have become my edible kryptonite.  These are TO DIE FOR and low in calories, carbs and fat. 

You will need:
8 ounces sugar snap peas
1/2 Tablespoon olive oil
1-2 teaspoons ginger paste (usually found in the produce section)
1 large garlic clove, crushed
1 teaspoon soy sauce, or Maggi Seasoning, or Bragg's Amino Acids (your choice)

Preheat broiler.  Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Wash sugar snap peas and tear off any funny looking ends.  Place sugar snaps in medium sized bowl.  In a separate small bowl, mix together 1 crushed garlic clove, olive oil, ginger paste and soy sauce.  Stir until combined (mixture should be lumpy) and dump sauce into larger bowl.  Toss to coat sugar snaps and spread coated sugar snap peas onto cookie sheet in one layer.  Place under broiler for approximately 2 minutes. Remove from oven, flip sugar snaps over and broil for another 2 minutes or until sugar snap peas are lightly browned in spots.  Enjoy immediately.
