After a couple of hot yoga classes and several attempts to get back into running, my mind and body are trying to make healthier decisions. When spring is bringing in ramps and other colorful items, it’s actually not hard at all. For this vegetable recipe, I’ve got shishito peppers to inspire your next round of grocery shopping.

Honey Soy Shishito Peppers
By W.
Makes about 1.5 cup

2 cups shishito peppers
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey
Oil (I used canola)
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
Sesame seeds

Wash shishito peppers and let them dry thoroughly before cooking. Mix soy sauce and honey together in a bowl.

Over medium heat, coat a skillet thinly with oil. Add shishito peppers and sauté and stir for about 6-7 minutes, or until the skin is slightly charred. Add garlic and stir; cook for 1 minute. Finally, add the soy-honey mixture and cook for one more minute.

Serve immediately and garnish with a sprinkle of sesame seeds.

Wasn’t that easy?
