Snow Pea Shoots
Are you familiar with this vegetable?
These are Pea Shoots only available for a short time once a year.
This is the edible vine of the plant that snow peas grow on.
They are here in spring at the Asian market or grocery stores as they are used shortly after the peas are picked.
Tender a flavourful they take seconds to make
Amaze your family with this unique addition to your repertoire.
2 lbs snow pea shoots, washed and drained
1-2 portobello mushrooms, cleaned & sliced
2 cloves garlic, sliced
1 tbsp ginger, minced
1-2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp tamari sauce (1 tbsp soy sauce can be substituted)
1 tsp sesame seed oil
1 tsp sesame seeds, toasted
Pour oil into a preheated large size skillet.  Add mushrooms, garlic and ginger, cook for 30 seconds to soften.
Add 1/2 of the pea shoots and cook while turning vegetables over with tongs. 
When they begin to wilt add the remaining shoots.
Continue turning to distribute heat as they quickly soften. Sprinkle tamari sauce over greens.
Cook until fully wilted for 5-10 minutes.
Dress with sesame oil and seeds.
Enjoy with love!
