Notes

Tips for best Roasted Sugar Snap Peas

  • Don't add extra oil. This recipe calls for a little bit of oil, and you might be tempted to add some extra. However, just a little is needed to get the beautiful color, and using extra will make them greasy.
  • Use great-tasting snap peas. Mann's brand has amazing sugar snap peas.
  • Don’t overcrowd the baking sheet. Arranging the snap peas in many layers causes them to stream instead of roast.

Recipe Variations

Here are a few ideas, how to change to try new flavors and never get bored with it:
  • Add dried herbs. A pinch of dried Italian herbs, thyme, or basil, will make a great addition to this dish. Add the herbs together with the other ingredients before roasting.
  • Add fresh herbs. Once the peas are roasted, sprinkle them with freshly chopped parsley, cilantro, or dill.
  • Add Parmesan. Toss the roasted snap peas with ¼ cup of shredded Parmesan before serving.
  • Make 'em spicy. Toss ¼ teaspoon (or more) of crushed red pepper flakes with the snap peas before roasting.
  • Add balsamic vinegar. Right before serving drizzle a little high-quality balsamic vinegar or balsamic glaze on top.
