1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 pounds pea shoots, rinsed, dried, and cut into 2inch lengths

2 teaspoons soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons sesame seeds, lightly toasted


  1. In a large heavy skillet, heat the olive oil over medium low heat. Add the ginger and the garlic and saute, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes, or until softened. Do not allow the garlic to brown. Add the pea shoots, increase the heat to medium, cover the pan and cook for 1 minute. Remove from the heat, add the soy sauce and the pepper and toss to mix. Serve immediately, scattered with the sesame seeds.
