How To Make Sugar Snap Peas In The Instant Pot
To make these snap peas start by putting them and the water into the Instant Pot. Close the lid and turn the valve to the seal position to seal the lid firmly.
Press either the “pressure cook’’ or ‘’manual’’ button to start the pot and set the time to zero minutes. By the time the pot has come to pressure, the peas will be perfectly cooked!
Once the peas have finished cooking, quickly release the steam from the pot.
Drain the water from the peas and put them into the serving dish that you wish to use.
Add the olive oil and seasonings and stir everything until combined.
Serve the sugar snap peas hot and enjoy!
- Don’t overcook the peas or they can become soggy.
- You can easily replace the olive oil with butter if you prefer. Olive oil is just a slightly healthier option.
- Make sure to serve this side dish right away because they get cold pretty fast if left out for too long.
