Pea shoots part ll


Inspired by stories of sauteing of pea shoots, I visited the Sunday farmers' market on Cortelyou. Knowing that I had garlic scapes, asparagus, and pea shoots, I found vendors with fresh scallops and homegrown shiitake mushrooms. The result: delicious.

Proportions can be seen in the photo to the left with the center bowl being diced mushroom stems (where all the vitamins are according the mushroom vendor). Can easily be adapted to use the baby bok choi that are included in this week's pickup.
