Pea Shoots is known more commonly as Dou Miao here in Chinese-speaking parts of Asia. Dou Miao means Pea Shoots, Pea Shoots means Dou Miao, it is really as straightforward and un-poetic as this recipe that I am sharing now - so so so simple, with only 3 ingredients and ready from the fridge to the plate in less than 10 minutes. There really is no excuse for not eating your vegetables now!

I personally have tried munching on Pea Shoots in its uncooked form and I totally disapprove - it is waaaaay too raw in its taste and too chewy, I reckon it would have taken me until next weekend to completely break it down in the mouth had I not spat it out. However, I understand that in western cuisines Pea Shoots are added to salads, and while I frown in disbelief at that, I realize that those Pea Shoots are most likely a different type from what we have here in Asia which have slightly thicker stems than its willowy western counterparts.

Stir-fried Dou Miao is a dish easily available in any chinese restaurants and is commonly cooked in chinese homes as well. The seasoning I used in this recipe is soy sauce, but fish sauce can be used as a substitute for that. Fish sauce will add a wonderful fragrance to the dish, however, it will also make it non-vegetarian. If you are opting for a vegetarian, soy sauce version, adding some sesame oil will add layers of flavours to it too.
