Pea Shoots — Weekly New Vegetable Challenge

Pea shoots made it into my shopping basket this week for the Becoming Elli new vegetable challenge. Aren’t they gorgeous?

I bought these at Kriegers, a locally owned health food/produce store.

These microgreens are grown by Vigeo Gardens, an Akron, Ohio-based modern farm.

What is a microgreen? It’s a young vegetable, typically between one to three inches. They fall somewhere between a sprout and baby greens.

I did exactly as the label advised and threw them on top of my salad. They were delicious. I think I preferred them to the broccoli sprouts I tried a couple weeks ago. They’re crunchy and have a delicate flavor.
