Pea shoot

Pea shoot: Pea shoots, sometimes called “pea tendrils” or “pea sprouts,” are the tender vines and leaves of pea plants. Sweet in flavor, with a delicate crisp texture, they can be found in the spring at farmer’s markets, Asian markets and some supermarkets. They’re best used immediately, but can be refrigerated for up to 2 days. Or use small sprouted pea plants (they resemble large, straight alfalfa sprouts), labeled “pea shoot” or “pea sprout,” found with produce in well-stocked supermarkets.
