I’m a huge fan of Sugar Snap Peas, and they’re definitely one of my favorite crunchy snacks as well as useful ingredient!

I still remember years ago when I was so excited to find sugar snap peas listed as Phase One for the (original) South Beach Diet, and they have been one of my favorite carb-conscious snacks for more years than I can remember. And I love to use these as an ingredient in salads and stir-fries as well.

I buy them in the big bag you see above (from Costco) and this is one vegetable I almost always have in my fridge. Peas are one of The World’s Healthiest Foods, so they’re something I feel good about grabbing for a snack. With all that going for them, I decided it was time to officially make these one of my Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks.

My favorite way to eat these is just raw as a snack, and I’m also very fond of using them to scoop up dips. But if you want some recipes using sugar snap peas, here are some recipes and ideas for using them.
