How To Make Roasted Green Peas
To make roasted green peas, just toss the green peas with a little olive oil, put on a baking sheet in a single layer and bake at 375F for 45 minutes to an hour. That’s it! As the peas are being baked, since they are so small in size they just dehydrate and become dried and crunchy. When the peas are done baking, sprinkle them with salt and your favorite seasonings. I love them sprinkled with chili powder or Parmesan cheese!
Where do you find shelled green peas? Just use frozen green peas in a bag! They are really cheap too! Just defrost the bag of frozen peas in a microwave, dry them with paper towels the best way you can and roast away. Now you have another healthy snack in your rotation!
