Pea Shoots!

I just tried this veggie at a local restaurant and I am hooked!! It was stir-fried lightly with lots of garlic and sesame oil, spring greens like, and it was just super yummy!!

I am adding it to my list of spring veggies that I adore, like asparagus, artichokes, snap peas and chard. Now I have to get some from the grocery and try it out at home.

I would imagine if you wound them into little circle packets they would go well in a bento, if they were drained well.

Anyone have any other recipes besides the garlic/sesame one?

Re: Pea Shoots!

Barb,

Pea shoots are so delicious! I had them for the first time a couple of years ago at a really great Taiwanese restaurant in Boston's Chinatown (Taiwan Cafe), and I fell in love. They were one of the most expensive dishes, which puzzled me until I tried growing my own pea shoots last year: one needs to grow a LOT of snow-pea type peas in order to get enough for a dish or two. I'm trying again this year because they are just so tasty. Thanks for posting the link!
