Garlic pea sprouts are made by steaming young pea plants that haven’t formed peas yet. There are many other vegetables that are served in a “young shoot” style like gai lan choy or bok choy.

Fresh pea sprouts have an amazing flavor. You’ll find them for sale in big bags at Chinatown grocery stores. Past a quick rinse in the sink, there’s no other prep you need to complete to get them ready to cook.

These garlic pea sprouts are a terrific dinner side dish, in addition to being a welcome addition to a dim sum meal. The cooking preparation below will also work really well with bok choy, choy sum or chinese broccoli.
