Roasted Snap Pea

Roasting removes the ‘snap’ from snap peas, but it heightens the nutty, sweet flavors of this wonderful spring vegetable!


  • 1 pint sugar snap peas
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • sea salt to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Put sugar snap peas in a single layer on a baking sheet covered in aluminum foil. Coat peas with olive oil. Sprinkle garlic, thyme and salt on peas and mix around so coated.
  3. Bake 7-8 minutes.
  4. Serve as a side dish, or add to a bowl of pasta!
