Easy Herbed Sugar Snap Peas. 5 very simple words that are easy to say and even easier to eat! Recently McCormick spices reached out to me to share a recipe from their website. There are many great ones to choose from. I chose these spring peas in celebration of the imminent arrival of warmer weather, the beautiful color green, the celebration of vegetables and real food.

Butter, herbs and sugar snap peas. Simplicity and pure joy!

Sugar Snap peas are a favorite vegetable over here. They have a delicate flavor that adapts well to all kinds of sauces, seasonings and spices. They are also delicious out of hand. No cooking necessary at all!

In honor of spring, McCormick is looking to inspire their fans with delicious recipes to enjoy all year long…featured on their new Pinterest page!
