Roasted Sugar Snap Peas Recipe
Not only are sugar snap peas delicious raw (one of my favorite Summer snacks!) but they taste so good roasted too!
It’s a bit funny that I’m posting this recipe just as about we’re to tear up our green beans and plant our next batch of sugar snap peas. Soon our boxes will be cleaned out with long beans and the sugar snap pea seeds will be put into the ground. Then we’ll start the watch of seeing the peas grow from sprouting from the ground to seeing who can make it to the top of the fence first.
Every year we grow sugar snap peas twice because we just can’t get enough. They are a favorite crunchy snack but they also go hand in hand with some of our favorite meals. Give me some sugar snap peas, pasta and a little olive oil and you got a big bowl of happiness.
With a big harvest of peas I wanted to come up with a sugar snap peas recipe that took them to that extra step of yum? The result…
How to Make Roasted Sugar Snap Peas
I’m in love with these roasted sugar snap peas! Perfect for dinner or snacking!
After you’re done the fun process of removing all the stems from the peas you’re pretty close to a finished meal as these only have to be baked for 7-8 minutes.
They’re roasted with a few simple ingredients, olive oil, garlic, thyme and sea salt. That’s it.
You are going to put the sugar snap peas in a single layer on a baking sheet that’s been covered with aluminum foil (easy clean up!) or silicone baking mats. Coat peas with olive oil, garlic, thyme and salt. After they’re mixed up, bake for 7-8 minutes and they’re ready to be eaten!
And the result is the most delicious peas you’ve tasted! They make a great side dish with practically anything.
Or consider them an “add in”. We love adding them to a big bowl of pasta with some garden broccoli and radishes too! We call this “Pea Pasta” in our house. This is one of our favorite weeknight meals because of how easy and quick it is.
Whatever way you chose to eat these Roasted Sugar Snap peas – you won’t regret it! Enjoy this healthy recipe!
