Sugar snap peas signal Spring is here. These crisp whole peas are great served fresh in salads, lightly steamed with a little lemon juice as a side dish or added to a stir-fry rice or grain main dish.
As part of the bean or legume family, sugar snap peas are protein-rich with almost six grams per cup. One cup of boiled sugar snap peas contain just 67 almost fat-free calories.
Fresh sugar snap peas or snow peas are a very good source of vitamin K. This vitamin is important for maintaining bone health. They are also a great source of folic acid and vitamin B6 to help fight osteoporosis and provide iron and vitamin C to help maintain your immune system.
Sugar snap peas look different than garden green peas. They are flat and the whole pod is edible. Small snap peas are more tender and sweeter than older, large pods. Snap off each end to remove stems before eating.
