Pea Shoot & Garlic Stir-Fry

Ingredients

This pea shoots stir-fry is a classic Chinese stir-fry dish to enjoy fresh pea shoots. It ‘s quick, easy, vegan-friendly and gluten-free. Feel free to add some of the other contents from your Ooooby veg box by shredding finely: onions, leeks, kale, Jerusalem artichokes, carrots, mushrooms, mange tout, peppers and much more! You can also add prawns, finely shredded beef, chicken or pork.
• 1 bag snow pea shoots
• 1 1/2 tbsp oil
• 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
• 1/2 inch ginger, minced
• 1/2 tablespoon Shaoxing wine* (or dry sherry)
• 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

Heat a wok/frying pan over high heat until hot, then reduce the heat to a medium. Add oil and swirl to coat, then sauté garlic and ginger until fragrant. Return the heat to medium-high, add your vegetables and fry until slightly softened. Now add your pea shoots and fold with a spatula to coat with oil. Then add Shaoxing wine/sherry and salt and stir until the pea shoots are starting to wilt. Quickly turn off the heat and immediately transfer the vegetables to a serving plate. Serve immediately. * Shaoxing wine is one of the oldest forms of rice wine in China and can be found in large supermarkets or Chinese grocer’s.

The service provided is second to none and the best thing is that I have discovered how to cook delicious, sustainable vegetables I have never eaten before. I absolutely love the surprise each week when I discover what is in the box.
