Pea Shoot & Garlic Stir-Fry


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


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.

Such an amazing project which results in amazing veg to feed us throughout the week ! It has also introduced us to veg we might otherwise not have tried and love them now. And it's all local and chemical free! Cannot recommend it enough :)
