A refreshing and savory taste of early spring. Pea tendrils are the tender shoots of young pea plants and are edible. They have a delicate almost spinachy flavor. This is a delicious way to harvest these young plants and make a beautiful side dish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Gently clean pea tendrils by wiping them with a slightly damp paper towel.
  2. Cut off the woody end of the pea tendrils, about one inch of the thick end.
  3. Heat oil in frying pan over medium high heat.
  4. Add pea tendrils, garlic, lemon juice, and salt
  5. Cook approximately 4 minutes, until pea tendrils are just wilted and still vibrantly green.
  6. Remove from pan immediately to avoid overcooking.
