Pea shoots are available year round.
Pisum Sativum (garden pea) belongs to the Fabaceae family. Pea plants take months to produce peas, but pea shoots are ready to eat in 2 weeks. Pea sprouts are generally grown in water and can be harvested in as little as 5 days. Pea shoots are grown in soil.
Pea shoots are the bright green tender young leaves of a pea plant. They taste faintly of fresh peas. They are often described as tasting like spring.
Pea shoots are very high in Vitamin K, which is important for blood clotting and other body processes. They are also full of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and folic acid.
For peak nutritional value, pea shoots are best served fresh, lightly steamed, or sauteed. They are excellent in salads and stir fries. Pea shoots make a great garnish atop pizzas or soups, and are a nice addition to green smoothies.
Pea shoots are referred to as dau miu in Cantonese.
Pea shoots have been traditionally used in Asian cuisines. They were introduced to U.S. farmers markets by Hmong immigrants. The Hmong (pronounced MONG) tribe left China in the early 19th century and disbursed to the highlands of Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand. Many arrived in the United States as refugees in the late 1970s. Currently the largest populations of Hmong are in California, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.
