In the kitchen with Kelley: Baked snap peas

So the other day, I was shopping at my favorite grocery store when a package caught my eye. Snapea Crisps was the name of the snack food. They were described as “original green pea crisps” and “baked.” I was intrigued, and I decided to see whether I could find a recipe for baking snap peas. I found a few, and I adapted them to create a healthy snack I can enjoy at the office. Much better than potato chips!

Sugar snap peas are high in fiber content. They are a source of vitamins C, K, B6 and folate, the mineral iron, and beta-carotene–a carotenoid with strong cancer-fighting properties.
