Sugar Snap Peas
I love eating snap peas raw as a snack. They are delicious lightly sweet and crunchy, and perfect with some ranch.
Stringless Sugar Snap Peas are a cross between English Peas and Snow Peas, so you get to eat them in their entirety, including the pod! And the bag that I buy at the store is prewashed with no preservatives, so they are ready to eat right out of the bag. No muss, no fuss.
Do I have to prep the peas?
The peas that I get at the store are ready to eat right out of the bag. Of course, you’ll want to read over the bag and make sure that yours are ready to eat as well.
But, if you grab the stringless variety you don’t even have to cut them to prep them.
That being said, if I were preparing these for my husband, I would cut the tips off of each pod. He has a texture issue with the tips, so I cut them off for him. As you can see in the photos, I didn’t cut the tips off of this batch. These were all for me!
If you have snap peas with strings, simply hold a small knife in one hand and the snap pea in the other, with the inside curve of the pod facing you. Cut one of the tips of the pod and pull off the tough string that runs along the length of the top of the pod.
Roasted snap peas
Snap peas are really delicious cooked, and they make a great veggie side dish.
Roasting snap peas brings out a touch of nutty sweetness in the peas.
The important thing when cooking snap peas is to make sure that you don’t overcook them. You want them to be bright green and maintain a nice little crunch.
Overcooked snap peas can end up soggy and slightly bitter.
Can these snap peas be prepared ahead?
I recommend eating these peas soon after preparing them. They will lose much of their crunch as they sit, and since the recipe is so easy and quick, there’s really no need to worry about making them ahead of time.
Simply take the peas out of the bag, toss them with oil and salt. Air fry for a few minutes, toss in the Parmesan, and air fry a minute longer for a delicious and easy-to-make side dish or veggie snack!
