  • What is it?

    Pea shoots are the young leaves of the pea plant.

  • How can it be eaten?

    The stems and leaves are edible and tender enough to be eaten raw or with minimal cooking. The delicate pea-flavoured shoots can be added raw to salads, sandwiches and pasta dishes. They can also be used to garnish soups, cooked in stir-fries, and steamed or sautéed to make a side dish.
