This super-quick vegetable side dish comes together in no time. Fresh snap peas need only a few minutes in a hot skillet-just enough time to whip up a simple soy-ginger glaze.
Whisk soy sauce, 1 tsp. oil, garlic, and ginger in a small bowl. Set aside.
Heat a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add snap peas and the remaining 2 tsp. oil and toss to coat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the peas start to blister, 3 to 4 minutes. Add carrot and cook, stirring, for 1 minute more.
Drizzle the reserved soy sauce mixture over the vegetables. Cook, stirring, until heated through. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired.
