These simple, healthy snow peas have all the hallmarks of a stellar side dish—just a handful of ingredients, an easy technique and addictive flavor. It's the perfect example of how using a little bit of an "indulgence fat" -- in this case butter -- the right way can add multitude of flavor in a healthy way.
This is one of my all-time favorite dinners. And when you have leftover Roasted Butternut Squash and Shallot on-hand, it comes together quickly. Brushing the tortillas with oil and baking them in the oven mimics the crispy texture of traditional deep-fried tostada shells, but with a lot less fat and mess.
