In early times, snow peas were grown mostly for their dry seeds. Green "garden" pea, eaten immature and fresh, were an innovative luxury of Early Modern Europe. Snow pea is most commonly the small spherical seed of the pod fruit Pisum sativum. Each pod contains several peas, which can be green or yellow. Snow peas can be a side dish, part of an appetizer or a colorful part of a main dish.
Snow peas are packed with vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, potassium, dietary fiber, magnesium, folic acid, and small levels of healthy fats. These pods are also very low in calories, with slightly over 1 calorie per pod. They also lack cholesterol, making them a filling, yet nutritious dietary component.
