I have been on a bit of a peashoot kick lately. They are a nice break from the usual greens and they have such a great rich and nutty flavour. I usually just toss them in as an addition to a burger or stir fry, but I wanted to make them the highlight of a recipe. I made a Peashoot Salad which was super delicious, fresh and healthy, yum!
I’m a big fan of multicoloured heirloom carrots, mainly because of how they look but also because they are so very delicious.
4 cups peashoots – chopped
1 large carrot – julienned
2 tbsp fresh basil – chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
½ tbsp agave nectar syrup
1 tbsp rice vinegar
2 tsp low sodium soy sauce
2 tsp sesame seeds – lightly toasted
1. In a small bowl mix together olive oil, agave nectar, rice vinegar, soy sauce and sesame seeds.
2. In a large bowl toss peashoots, carrots, and basil. Toss dressing in. Serve right away.
