Snow pea tips, also called pea tendrils or pea shoots, are spring vegetable which have a wonderful, sweet flavor is also a very tender delicious vegetable.Last summer ,I do planted  some snow pea  and sweet pea in my garden but I didn't have the urge to pick the pea tips for cooking even though I heard from friends that the pea tips is great for cooking.Recently when I shop at Asian market in NYC , I saw pea tips on sale and suddenly I have the urge to try this vegetable.Maybe it's because I get bored eating the same kind of greens everyday..To my surprised, I found stir-fry snow pea tips is really tender crisp and delicious!! Trust me,all I need to stir fry is some oil,garlic and salt!! taaa-dah!!
