Parmesan Roasted Snap Peas

I really wish I could scream, “Spring is here!” but sadly, it hasn’t quite arrived in NYC. Case and point–I’m about to go for a run in 39 F (feels like 31 F) degree temperatures, but what can you do? The nice thing is that I can force spring to happen in my kitchen with seasonal produce. This year, I’ve been trying to be better about getting out of my cooking comfort zone and creating recipes with different ingredients.

Although I like to make healthy food tasty (see logo), I also like to keep it simple. If a recipe uses some weird ingredient that I can only find at Whole Foods, I’m definitely not making it. That’s why I love this simple recipe that features a lesser used veggie in an easy way.

These Parmesan Roasted Snap Peas are so flavorful and come together in minutes. I made the whole batch at the beginning of the week and zapped them for a few minutes when I was ready to eat. It’s really just as simple as combining sugar snap peas, oil, parmesan, salt and pepper. And, as you can see from the pictures, the parmesan gets nice and chewy in the oven and offers such a yummy taste. Here’s to getting out of your comfort zone this spring…and warmer temperature, eventually!
