Sugar snap peas are a sweet, crunchy snack, just as they are! The shells and all can be eaten, end to end. You can pop them in your lunch or keep them at your desk for mid-afternoon munching. Here are some other options for enjoying this spring treat:

  • Put them out with sliced radishes and carrot sticks on a crudite plate with soft cheese, a green pesto sauce, or another dip.
  • Cut the peas into sections crosswise and toss in green salads
  • Stir-fry them lightly with greens, green garlic, spring onions and/or mushrooms and top with your favorite sauce such as miso- tahini, green curry, or simple salt & olive oil!
  • Steam the whole peas lightly and mix them with chopped fresh green herbs, olive oil and lemon juice.
