Roasted Snap Peas

As I have mentioned several times, roasting vegetables is the sneaky way to make something healthy taste like dessert.  And I love dessert.

Well, when the husband and I visited Costco recently, we snagged a 48 pound bag of snap peas.  And if you are a family of two trying to polish off 48 pounds of anything, you get creative.  Turns out roasting snap peas is an excellent idea.

Other excellent roasting ideas:
Have you tried roasting veggies yet?  No?  Well, give it a won't regret it.

Roasted Snap Peas
Serves: 4

1 pound snap peas
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Line a big baking sheet with aluminum foil.  Place your snap peas on the baking sheet.  Drizzle with olive oil, then sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Use your hands to mix everything together.  Roast for 12-15 minutes, stirring halfway through, until snap peas are a lovely golden color.
