Recipe by Sharon123

Pea tendrils are the young leaves and shoots of snow pea plants and taste like a cross between peas and spinach. The Chinese call them dau miu, and use them in soups and stir fries. Adapted from Bon Appetit!

This was a delicious and simple recipe. I used only the leaves of the pea tendrils because we did not like the woody texture of the stems. Served with white rice and Recipe #168890.
