garlic pea shoots

serves 2-4

1 pound pea shoots, washed

3 tablespoons grapeseed oil (any mild flavor oil is fine)

3-4 cloves garlic, smashed then chopped

1/2-inch nub of ginger, peeled and minced

1 tablespoon soy sauce

ground white pepper

In a large saute pan or wok, heat oil over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot and shiny looking, add the garlic and shake the pan constantly to cook until softened and barely golden.

Add the ginger and cook for another minute, being careful not to burn the garlic. Add the pea shoots to the pan and toss in the oil and garlic to coat thoroughly. Cook for about 1 minute, stirring frequently so that the greens wilt evenly. Add soy sauce and white pepper to taste and serve immediately.
