Discovering Pea Shoots

Just because the CSA summer / fall season is over and we’re not getting weekly deliveries doesn’t mean there is a shortage of organic, healthy vegetables.

While we love our root veggies as much as the next person, I was excited to spot this bright bag of green at the farmers market this weekend.

I’d never had pea shoots before. Like baby spinach, the leaf is mild and tender. But in contrast, the stalks are slightly woody, crunchy and bright.

They are delicious as a salad on their own and a great way to top a sandwich or add some depth to a simple bowl of soup.

Don’t forget to support your local greenhouse growers this winter!
