Craving Life ~ Flaxseed and Sugar Snap Peas

I have been exploring roasting various vegetables in the oven to conserve their texture and flavour. This Roasted Flaxseed & Sugar Snap Peas amazingly delicious and very quick and easy to prepare. The flaxseed not only adds fiber plus a lot of nutrients to the dish, it makes a lovely presentation and adds an enjoyable nutty taste.

If you do not have flaxseed on hand you can substitute toasted sesame seeds.

Enjoy!
