Easy Roasted Sugar Snap Peas

Sugar snap peas are a wonderful spring treat for us.  When in season, my daughter has them almost everyday as a part of her lunch.  We usually love to snack on them raw, but this roasted version is fantastic!  It takes just a few ingredients and only a few minutes to make.  They pair nicely with a wide variety of main courses from pastas to burgers and more.  Simple and delicious, what more can you ask for?  :)


10 oz fresh sugar snap peas
1 Tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
3 Tbsp shallots, minced
1 tsp fresh thyme (or 1/2 tsp dried)


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Place the sugar snap peas in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet.  Drizzle the olive oil over them and toss to coat evenly.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Top with the shallots and thyme.  
  3. Bake for about 8 minutes until tender but still firm.
