Tahini Braised Pea Shoots | 火麻仁麻酱豆苗

In Mandarin, pea shoots are called 豆苗 [Dòu miáo]. You can find them in almost any Chinese grocery store, during late winter and spring. Pea shoots are delicate and just needed to be cooked lightly, and try to buy them young, so they are sweet and still tender (older vegetables tend to be more fibrous and bitter). We infused this traditional recipe with tahini, hemp seeds, and a concentrated tonic water (made with our Throat Soothing TCM Tonic Bag). Whether or not it's the first time you are trying pea shoots, you are in for a plethora of pleasant flavors!
