Yellow pea shoots are the tender leaves of a newly growing pea plant. They have a delicate texture and their taste is reminiscent of fresh spring peas. Their blanched yellow coloring is a result of being grown in darkness, if exposed to light prior to harvest the shoots will take on a green hue.
Yellow Pea shoots are available year-round.
The Latin name for the garden pea, which is a member of the Fabaceae family, is Pisum Sativum. Pea shoots can be harvested as early as two weeks after planting. If not harvested as a shoot, the annual climber will produce podded peas.
Yellow pea shoots provide Vitamin C and protein.
Yellow pea shoots are a colorful addition to salads and stir fried dishes. They can be added to soups and stews at the end of cooking. Yellow pea shoots make an attractive garnish to pizzas and flatbreads. They pair well with the flavors of garlic and ginger, as well as rice wine.
Pea shoots are popular in Asian dishes. They were introduced by Hmong immigrant farmers to farmers markets in the United States. Peas are a cool weather crop in the garden, but pea shoots can be grown any time indoors.
