Pea Shoots

Quart ziplock bag of fresh pea shoots. Pea shoots are the tender leaves and tendrils of very young pea plants. They actually do have the flavor of peas, with a delicate, light taste. Eat them raw or lightly cooked. Add to salads for an undercurrent of fresh pea flavor that’s pure springtime! Store pea shoots by wrapping in paper towels in a bag in the vegetable bin of the refrigerator. Rinse in cool water, drain and let dry before using. Best used within a week. Two ounces of these tasty greens offers more than half of the RDA for vitamin C, a quarter of the RDA for vitamin A and significant amounts of folic acid, all for only 12 calories! Pea shoots are also packed full of carotenes— strong antioxidants that protect cells from damage and help prevent certain diseases.
