Paprika and Garlic Roasted Peas
This crunchy snack uses frozen green peas and basic pantry seasonings.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Thaw the peas in a colander or on a paper towel. When they are no longer frozen, spread them out on a clean paper towel and gently press another towel on top. Blot out any moisture and repeat this step as needed until the peas are noticeably drier. Be careful not to smush them.
Transfer the peas to the baking sheet and toss in the olive oil, paprika, and garlic salt. Spread them out in a single layer, being careful not to overcrowd.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until the peas are browned and some of the smaller ones are shriveled. Shake the baking sheet every 10 minutes to promote even cooking. Remove from oven and enjoy!
- Do not skip thawing and blotting the peas. If the peas are holding excess water, they will steam in the oven instead of getting crunchy.
- Other seasoning ideas include salt and pepper, chili powder, cayenne pepper and garlic powder, and even nutritional yeast.
