Snow pea shoots (also known as snow pea leaves or snow pea tips) are a family favorite vegetable in my home. It’s our go to veggie for a quick stir fry or hot pot because it’s so good!

If you’re looking to add a quick, light, and refreshing side dish for your main dish, snow pea shoots are a great choice. Only a few simple ingredients are required to make this easy and healthy vegetable dish!
