Name: Amount:
canola oil, divided 3 tsp
fresh (or frozen and thawed) snow peas, patted dry and trimmed 3 cups
medium garlic cloves, minced 4
salt 0.25 tsp
-1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves 0.25

Working in two batches, heat 1 1/2 tsp canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
