Crunchy Seasoned Peas


Looking for a healthy alternative to chips or crackers? Look no further – these crunchy peas are the perfect healthy substitute.

When in Vietnam earlier this year we were often given bowls of salty crunchy peas at bars or before dinner drinks. Our toddler could not get enough of them surprisingly. I have been meaning to create our own version since then and only just got to it. They aren’t entirely the same. But still popular with the little person.


And only 3 ingredients:

  • A bag of frozen peas
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • 1 & 1/2 tablespoons of oil

Defrost the peas in the fridge over night, mix the 3 ingredients together in a bowl.

Pre-heat oven to around 180 degrees Celsius in a fan force oven or equivalent.

Place a sheet of cooking paper on an oven tray and lay out the peas. Cook them in the oven for about 30-40 minutes, checking every 10 minutes to make sure they don’t burn.

Once some start to brown, take a couple out to cool and see if they are crunchy. If so, you are good to go!


They are a great lunch box snack or good for sitting in front of the football… or at least that’s what I will try and convince my husband now! Healthy and tasty is a winning combo!
