Dicot Farm Loves Pea Shoots!

Pea shoots in soilPea shoots are great by themselves as a snack…but here are some ideas for how to use this delicious, sweet microgreen:

  • In a salad, either alone or mixed with other greens. Top with:
    • Chopped apples, crumbled blue cheese, toasted walnuts and a sweet vinaigrette
    • Shredded cheddar, chopped tomatoes, sliced avocado and honey mustard dressing
    • Shredded or chopped carrots, cucumbers, radishes, croutons and Caesar dressing
    • Small cubes of cooked butternut squash, chopped pecans, roasted sunflower seeds and a red wine vinaigrette
    • Anything you want!
  • In a sandwich
  • On top of pizza…sprinkle on hot pizza and let pea shoots wilt just a bit
  • In an omelet
  • Add a handful to a bowl and pour soup over them – they’re so tender they don’t really need any cooking time
  • In a smoothie
