  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Heat canola and sesame oils in a large flat-bottom wok or large pot over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until soft and fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add pea shoots (or sprouts), rice wine, salt and white pepper; cook until the greens are wilted and very soft, 1 to 3 minutes.
  • Tip: Shaoxing is a seasoned rice wine used for cooking. Dry sherry can be used in its place.
