I bought some English pea greens at the farmers market. Can they be stir fried?

Thats how I do it! Saute a couple of cloves of smashed grlic in a few tbs of olive oil. Discard the garlic when browned, then in with the peashoots. Similar method to spinach, hese cook down quickly, and reduce greatly in volume. Delicious-its a common asian ingredient for stirfrys in nyc chinatown.

I agree with ChezHenry...and sometimes I squirt a little lemon juice over.

Also nice in a sandwich ..... Use instead of lettuce

Make sure they're tender though, or pick off the tender leaves and discard the tough stems. A coworker of mine once bought some older pea shoots from a farmer and thought it would work out. It made for some pretty uncomfortable eating.
