Pea shoots are a low-amine, colorful, tender, fun dish to add to any meal (who doesn’t like a vegetable with so many curly-Q’s in it?). It’s light, and comes together very well with the low-amine sauce used. It is simple to make, and can work as a low-amine entrée  or low-amine side dish.

1 bundle pea shoots (tight bundle should be about 4″ in diameter)

1 Tbsp safflower oil

1 Tbsp sesame oil substitute

2 Tbsp soy sauce substitute

2 tsp sugar

1 tsp corn starch

1 Tbsp ginger, grated

6 cloves garlic, chopped

2 Tbsp red onion, chopped finely

  • Mix sugar, sesame oil substitute, soy sauce substitute, corn starch, and ginger together. Stir until sugar and corn starch are dissolved. Set aside.
  • Heat 1 Tbsp safflower oil in wok on high temperature.
  • Add garlic and red onion. Cook until fragrant and onions are starting to go translucent.
  • Add pea shoots and toss rapidly so that the pea shoots cook quickly and evenly. When they start to soften, add sauce mix and continue tossing pea shoots.
  • When cooked to desired doneness, remove from heat and plate immediately.
  • Serve while hot.
