  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Pinch of red-pepper flakes
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed
  • 8 ounces snow peas, trimmed and sliced in half
  • 8 ounces pea shoots, cut into 2-inch lengths
  • Coarse salt
  • 1/2 lemon


  1. Heat oil, red-pepper flakes, and garlic in a large skillet over medium-high, stirring constantly, until garlic is golden, about 1 minute. Add snow peas and cook, stirring, until bright green and still crisp, about 1 minute.

  2. Add pea shoots in batches along with 1 tablespoon water. Cook, stirring, until just wilted, about 30 seconds. Season with salt, squeeze lemon over top, and serve.
