Snow Pea Shoots

Another new green, snow pea shoots are the fragrant top leaves of the snow pea plant. I got a boxed packet of these greens at the local Asian grocery store. The leaves, the shoots as well as the wispy tendrils are tender and edible. I simply sauteed them with some panch phoron , green chillies, thinly sliced garlic and a minced shallot. As you can see I did add a nice sprinkle of roasted sesame seeds at the end for some crunch. Perhaps the next time around I will braise it with soy sauce and ginger...yum, I see endless possibilities. So how would you cook your little bundle of snow pea goodness?
