So I harvested the peas shoots, flowers and leaves. I have seen sautéed pea shoots on the menu at Chinese restaurants but had never made them myself.  My first attempt was a success.

  1.  1/2 pound of peas shoots
  2. 2 tsps. of sesame oil
  3. 2 cloves of garlic
  • Chop the peas shoots very small or they will be stringy.
  • Heat the oil in a cast iron pan
  • Add the chopped garlic and sauté for a minute
  • Add peas shoots and stir for about a minute.
  • Very easy and delicious.
  • Add soy sauce if you wish.
