Pea shoots

energystar Apr 30, 2012 06:47 AM

I wanted to make a recipe for Mushroom, Goat Cheese Omelet with "Pea Shoots" for Mother's Day.
I called Whole Foods and they don't carry Pea shoots. Does anyone know where I can find them? I live in Plano.

    Try Tom Spicer's, "Spiceman FM 1410" on Fitzhugh.
    Or, Bolsa Mercado or Urban Market on W. Davis in Oak Cliff.

      Thank you for the suggestion. I have not been to any of these places. (just moved back here)

      Try any of the Asian Markets - H Mart, 99 Ranch Market and the like. They get them and they are very inexpensive.

        Are you wanting the actual pea tendril or pea shoot

        Pea Tendril

        Pea Shoot (Dou Miao

        The two have two different retailers....pea shoots I would say are available at most Asian markets as noted above and the tendrils Spicers might have depending on the season. You could call Spicer but good luck on the language barrier at the Asian markets.

          Pea shoots. Seems like I seem them often in recipes these days.

          I was at H Mart looking for something about a month ago. It took 4 people to figure out what I was asking! :)

          I will call Spicers. Thanks.

              I am in Plano. Thanks for the information. I am learning about some great places, pea shoots or otherwise!

                Look up many of my past recommendations especially for ethnic food. Plano, Carrollton, Irving and Richardson are the best places. I just have grown tired of constantly repating posts.

                If you need more recommendations as far as produce b/c appearantly you do quite a bit of cooking let me know. I can point you in the right direction without having to constantly drive into Dallas proper

          Sorry for the late response. I haven't checked in here in a while. Carrollton Plaza Supermarket in Carrollton often has pea shoots, and theirs are very fresh unlike some other places where I've seen them. They had them when I was there last Friday. Carrollton Plaza is at the southeast corner of Frankford and Josey.

            Thanks. Wish I had known the other day. I was at H Mart and they didn't have them.

              Sorry I didn't check in sooner :( When I've seen pea shoots at H Mart they've always been very wilty. Much better at Carrollton Plaza.
