"Roasted Green Peas" are a common snack food throughout most Southeast-Asian countries, and they are surprisingly easy to make (healthy too). They are so 'nutty' tasting, my children would not believe they were peas! Spicy, crunchy, and fun to munch on, these peas are similar to wasabi roasted peas, but with/ or without spices depending on your taste. As a bonus, they can be stored in a container for weeks without losing any of their flavor or crunchiness. And you do not need to use fresh peas - frozen work just fine. ENJOY!
|Oven Roasted Peas|
- one 16 ounce bag of frozen peas, thawed (Use a paper towel to gently pat them, ensuring they are as dry as possible.)
- 2 to 3 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 tablespoon sea salt
- any additional spices that you desire such as garlic salt, cumin or red pepper
- Place one of the racks in your oven just one above the middle rung.
- Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees.
- In a bowl, combine the peas, oil and salt and any additional seasoning you chose.
- Spread the pea mixture in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Use the back of a spoon or your hand to pat them down.
- Bake them for about 40-45 minutes. Check on the peas every 10 minutes and give them a shake so that they all get roasted evenly.
- Every oven is different, therefore you may need to bake the peas for a longer or shorter time period depending on it.
- After 30 minutes, take one pea out. Cool it off and check if it has turned crunchy.
- Keep a watchful eye once you think they are almost done.
- Once you are satisfied with the result, take them out of the oven. Cool them in an air tight container and enjoy!
