This incredibly simple recipe from Bon Appetit boasts just the right amount of spice, courtesy of red pepper flakes and garlic.
1/4 pound pea vines, any thick stems removed and torn into 2-inch pieces
2 tablespoons canola oil
3-4 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
Pinch red pepper flakes
1. Heat oil in a large wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Add chile flakes and garlic and cook, tossing, until garlic is barely golden, about 30 seconds.
2. Add pea shoots and cook, tossing often, until stems are crisp-tender and leaves are just wilted, about 1 minute; season with salt.
