Sugar Snap Peas

Sugar Snap Peas

This is our favorite way of making sugar snap peas! They are easy to prep and even easier to cook when you steam them in the microwave. You'll know they're done when they still have a vibrant green hue and a crisp-tender crunch.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.


To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time. 

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.


Cook Times

1 cup (50g) 2-3 mins
2 cups (100g) 3-4 mins
3 cups (150g) 4-5 mins


  1. Rinse and trim the sugar snap peas. Place in an Anyday dish and cover with the lid (knob lifted).
  2. Cook in the microwave for the time listed in the table, or until snap peas are crisp-tender.

Cooking Tips

  • The leftover moisture after rinsing helps the snap peas steam.
  • Toss with olive oil and salt for a quick side dish.
