Stir Fried 'Dou Miao' @ Snow Pea Shoots/Sprouts

Snow pea shoots is also known under the scientific name pisum sativum. Being an Asian plant, the snow pea shoots has various Asian names: the Chinese call it dow miu/dou miao, the Japanese name it tobyo and in Philippines, it is known as sitsaro talbos. Shoots are basically the plants that grow above the soil and the snow peas are one of the most popular species of shoots. Our local pea shoots are mostly imported from China. Due to the fact that is very low in fats and calories, the snow pea shoots are used in low calorie diets and in vegetarian meals.
The snow pea shoots have a tender flesh, which is delicious if it is stir-fried and topped with garlic or soy sauce (called tamari in the Asian cuisine) and spices, like ginger.

There are actually a few pea shoots available in the market, which are shown as the above pictures. For me, I enjoy the bottom picture's pea shoots which is bigger and crunchier. Or maybe you're interested in growing your own sprouts, click here.
