Pea sprouts are good accompaniment to your main dish, a highly nutritious green vegetable derived from snow peas or snap peas.  They are very rich in vitamins and minerals, high in Vitamin K and Vitamin C, and a good source of Vitamin A. 

Pea sprouts have a mild delicate flavor, crisp, light, and refreshing.  You can eat them fresh, lightly steamed, lightly sauteed, make into a salad, or as a garnishing.  My favorite is stir frying with little oil and garlic. 

8 to 10  cups pea spouts
1 1/2 tablespoon canola oil
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon oyster sauce (optional)
pinch of salt

Wash the pea sprouts under cold water and spin dry in a salad spinner. Heat the wok, add the oil and the garlic.  Just cook until lightly brown.  Add the pea sprouts and keep mixing until just about wilted.  Sprinkle salt and add the oyster sauce.  Mix well but do not overcook.
