Roasted Snap Peas with Mint + Sea Salt

Spring fresh, roasted snap peas with mint.

My CSA brought me these snap peas.

And I literally debated what to make with them for days.

Half of me wanted to make a killer spring salad with a luscious dressing.

The other half of me wanted to do something heartier, with salt.

My snap pea babes were destined for the oven.

I threw in a little mint and lemon and garlic in a food processor.

Then coated the snap peas in that little mixture.

I popped them in the oven, roasted them till golden brown and crunchy and delicious.

The fresh mint comes out subtle, yet bright. The coarse sea salt makes the flavors pop.

    This looks fabulous and I just bought a big package of sugar snaps. Good thing I’m growing mint on the patio – I think this will be on the menu tonight!
