Recently, one of my readers asked me what’s the best way to cook pea sprouts. In my opinion, a quick stir-fry with minimum seasonings is the best way to enjoy them. Besides the pea sprouts, only a few other ingredients are needed, namely, garlic, oil, sea salt, and dried chilies. The result is fantastic. So, here is my Stir-Fry Pea Sprouts recipe. Try it.
Stir-Fry Pea Sprouts
450 g Pea Sprouts
3 Cloves Garlic, thinly sliced
3 to 4 Dried Chilies
1 1/2 Tbsp Peanut Oil
Sea Salt to taste
Wash the pea sprouts, discarding any wilted leaves and drain thoroughly. Cut the chilies in half or into 2 cm sections, discarding the seeds as much as possible.
Heat the oil and cook the garlic in a low heat until translucent. Set the garlic aside. Turn the heat on high and add the chilies and stir-fry for 10 - 20 seconds until the oil smells spicy and the chilies are just beginning to turn a darker red. Then add in the pea sprouts and the reserved garlic. Stir-fry for about 1 minute and season with sea salt. Serve immediately.
