What to do with pea shoots?

helmswoman Mar 18, 2013 12:06 PM

I bought some pea shoots (charmingly called "shamrock greens") at my local farmers market over the weekend. I had them as a replacement for lettuce in my favorite sandwich, and they were delicious, but I have a lot leftover. What else can you do with them?

    Pea shoots are highly regarded in Cantonese Chinese cuisine. It is usually stir fried.

      Add them to a soup as a garnish.

        They are lovely stir-fried very briefly with ample slivers of garlic.
