Stir-Fry Pea Shoots

This is one of my favorite Chinese vegetable. Cooked right, it comes out juicy and tender- also packed with good nutrition.
To make it simple and consistent, I’ve simplify this dish by blanching the sprouts (instead of stir-frying) and mixing it with the beautiful sauce. The result? Healthier and delicious!

Serves 2 as a side dish

Chinese Pea-Shoots

  • 2 cup pea shoots
  • 1 tbsp peanut oil
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp raw cane sugar
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
  • 4 dried chilies
  • 1 tbsp chinese cooking wine
  • 1 tbsp chicken stock (or water)
  1. Boil a pot of water; when water is boiling, blanch the pea shoots until wilted, about 1 min. Drain and rinse in cold water, set aside. Should reduce to half the size.
  2. In a bowl, mix salt, sugar, wine, and stock; set aside. Heat gently a small pot with peanut oil and add in garlic and chilies; fry until fragrant , about 2 minutes. Pour the hot oil along with the garlic and chilies into the mixture in the bowl. Mix well and pour onto the pea sprouts; mix (massage) well and serve along with rice.
  3. Enjoy!
