It’s been a little while since I’ve done a quick and easy recipe, so thought it was about time.

Not only is this a quick and easy recipe, I’d also say it makes for a healthy snack and lasts for a good couple of weeks too (not that they last that long in this house)!

Seasoned peas

Ingredients

2 cups of peas, any – I’ve used petit pois this time

2 tbs olive oil

1 tsp garlic granules

1/4 tsp cumin

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1/2 tsp chilli powder

salt & pepper – however much you would normally use to season

 

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 160C/320F
  • If using frozen peas, defrost (place peas in a colander and run under hot/warm water for a minute or so) dry peas as best you can and put to one side
  • In a bowl, mix all other ingredients together
  • Put peas into the bowl with the oil mix and toss until peas are coated with mixture
  • Line a baking tray with baking paper (not sure if it matters what you line it with – baking paper is just what I have always used)
  • Spread peas over baking paper and move them around until you are sure they are all in one single layer

Peas-before

  • Bake for 40 minutes, give them a shake, bake for another 20 minutes. Let them cool for a couple of minutes then try some, if you’d rather they be cooked for longer – go ahead, just make sure you keep an eye on them
  • You can either serve them straight away or let them cool completely then store them in a jar and snack on them when you want something tasty but won’t ruin your appetite

Pea-jar

Keep them in your desk drawer at work for those desperate times, or at home for a light bite, these are also a great alternative to popcorn for movie snacking.

As you may have noticed in all of my blogs, there’s an ‘honesty’ moment. Today’s blog is no different.

I have written down a recipe for you, but honestly, I change what I put on these nearly every time! So don’t feel you have to stick to the recipe – add whatever the hell you want into your mix – they’ll taste great just the same. For instance, next time I’m thinking about trying a dusting of parmesan over the top.

Get creative and give these a go with your own style added! Don’t forget to let me know what you try on yours I’d love to know how they turn out!  : )
