Crispity, Crunchity Snap Pea “Fries”
So I was doing my usual grocery shopping this weekend when I came upon a bag of these.
“What an ingenious, healthy snack,” I thought.
I picked up the bag, all excited to have stumbled upon a new tasty treat, and perused the nutritional info. They are 120 calories for less than a third of the bag and six grams of fat, likely from the corn oil they possess. Hmmm, sounds like a far cry from a naturally delicious sugar snap pea.
But it gave me an idea. Couldn’t I totally bake my own sugar snap peas, just like I’ve done with a plethora of other vegetables??
So tried it out, and I was pleasantly surprised. Check out the quick and easy recipe. And head over to Jenn’s blog Peas & Crayon’s for tons of other fabulous recipe ideas!
Crispy, Crunchy Snap Pea Snackers
Sugar Snap Peas (as many as your little heart desires)
Salt & Pepper
1. Set oven to 350.
2. Rinse snap peas, dry, and scatter on a baking sheet.
3. Spray with cooking spray (I used EVOO) and toss to coat.
4. Sprinkle with spices. You can use the ones I suggested or go crazy with your own.
5. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven, flip, and bake for 15 more.
That little batch of goodness packs almost 3 grams of protein and 2.5 grams of fiber.
They may not taste like Mickey D’s, but I’m loving them :)
