Pea Shoots

One of the best parts of being a part of a CSA is getting unusual or unfamiliar vegetables. This week everyone will be getting pea shoots in their shares and to some of you I bet this is a new item.

Pea shoots are the top tender growth of the pea plant. Can you see the tip-top of the plant with the tendrils and delicate leaves?  That is all we harvest for pea shoots.

Unsurprisingly they taste just like peas! They are very tender with a fresh-crunchy texture.

You can store them in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for at least a week.

One of my favorite ways to  enjoy pea shoots is in pesto.

You can use them in salads, on sandwiches, or add them to a stir fry or fold them into scrambled eggs.

I think you will love using them in different dishes all week.

Have fun eating and I’ll see you at pickup.
