Recipe type: Appetiser
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 2 cups fresh snap peas
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
Other Items Needed
  • ball of foil
Instructions
  1. Wash snap peas under cold water. Lay snap peas on a paper towel and blot off any extra water using another paper towel.
  2. Transfer snap peas to a bowl. Drizzle olive oil over the top and sprinkle salt and garlic powder over the top. Toss to coat snap peas, either with your hands or with a spoon, and then place onto a baking sheet.
  3. Set the oven temperature to 170° F and place the tray of snap peas into the oven on the center rack. Using the ball of foil, prop the oven door open about 1 inch.
  4. Bake 3 - 4 hours or until the snap peas are dried and crispy.
Notes
If you need these quicker rather than later, you can make these quickly using a higher temperature in the oven. If going this route, heat oven to 350° F and bake for 15 minutes, flip the snap peas, and bake for an additional 15 minutes.

Since we’ve joined a local CSA, we are getting more fresh, organic vegetables than we know what to do with. This has caused us to think outside of the box to get all these extraordinary veggies used up before they go bad.

The idea of Homemade Snap Pea Chips came to me while my daughter and I were making a batch of Kale Chips using kale from our weekly CSA box. I wasn’t sure how they would turn out, but boy am I glad we gave it a shot.

    Thank you for giving a recipe that I can use the oven with. As you mentioned so many of them are dehydrator only. Will give this a try, would be a fabulous snack.

    I really have heard that snap peas are good for you, I never thought to make them into chips. I bet I would be more apt to munch on this than not. I will give your recipe a try to do something different for snack time!
