Sauteed Pea Tendrils


by: I Can Cook That

Pea tendrils (or pea shoots) are the leaves from a snow pea plant. They have a bit of a spinach-pea taste, delicate and very tasty. Before receiving them in my CSA share, I just thought they were used in a stir fry or as a topping. But these little guys are really delicious in a simple saute.

1.  Heat the olive oil in a saute pan over medium-low heat. Add the garlic cloves and cook for 2 minutes, until sizzling but not browned. You can either remove the garlic, or keep it in there to add more garlicky flavor. Add the pea tendrils and salt to taste. Saute for 1-2 minutes until slightly wilted but still maintaining its shape. That's it! So simple, so yummy.
