Pea shoots 75g

£4.99

The tasty, tender and sweet tendrils of the pea shoots – aka dou miao in Mandarin – wrap around your fork to give some added texture with every bite. Packed with nutrients, they’re ideal for supercharging a healthy salad. They’re more commonly cooked in asian dishes, and will fast become as common to your stir -fries as bean sprouts. These shoots tend to do what we call ‘the spinach trick’ and will quickly disappear if overcooked. We like to blanche them at the last minute then drop them into a dish before serving.

What’s its story?

Though the origins of the pea plant is unknown, it’s likely one of the oldest domesticated crops in the world. Remnants of pea plants have been found in Switzerland dating back to the Bronze Age and in an Egyptian tomb at Thebes – a well travelled vegetable!
