Steamed Snow Pea Greens with ginger and garlic

Oct 31, 2010
Recipe Type:

This is an Asian side dish, made with fresh snow pea vines.


1lbs of snow peas vines4 garlic cloves chopped fine2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger1 table spoon olive oil1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil


heat oil in a large saute pan, add garlic, snow pea greens and toss quickly, to heat through. When the snow pea vines are heated, add ginger and toss. Remove from the heat and drizzle the sesame oil over the greens and serve.

Thank you, I read up on growing winter peas  & it seems the vine tips are in as much demand as the pods. In stir- fry & the like. But this is the first  dish that I have found to use the tips in. The added culture of a dish from another country is a bonus.
I have an early spring soup recipe with spring onions, spring garlic, baby carrots, turnips and snow pea greens,,, it's an awesome spring soup tonic!! When I locate it,, I'll add it in. HAPPY Nov 1st!
I think in Europe snow peas are called Mangetout. Correct me if i'm wrong.
As always you are right, Glenn. My reseach says that Mangetout or Mange tout is French for "eat all". That the name apply to snow peas & to snap peas. Thank you for short European trip, Glenn.
the snow pea tips are wonderful - I have just lightly steamed them before - thanks for sharing this recipe.  we only grow them here in our "winter", but i will definitely come back for this recipe.
