Homemade Snapea Crisps?

chicgail Sep 15, 2009 04:46 PM

Calbee Snapea Crisps is marketed as a salad crispy add-on. I am totally addicted to it as a snack. The ingredients are listed as "green peas, corn oil, rice, salt" and some additives. Anyone know if there is a way for a home cook to make something similar out of real green peas?

    I think they're extruded, much like cheese doodles, and would be really tough to duplicate at home. (ever notice how each snapea crisp looks identical to its brethren? Almost like a pringle...) I wanted to believe they were "real", but i think they're made from dehydrated peas and rice flour. They ARE good, though, and because they're green, they must be good for you, right? ;) adam

        I agree with adam. I've also become addicted to these. Have you tried roasted green peas with salt? (like wasbi peas without the tingle and burn)

        Dang, these things are good! Anyone tried deep frying sugar snap peas?
