Pea Shoots & Radishes
Pea shoots or pea tendrils are the “climbers” on a pea plant. They grow up the netting vertically and don’t have flowers on them (flowers form pods.)
Pea shoots are extremely popular in the UK as a salad green. They are tender and flavorful raw. They are also useful in a stir fry or as garnish on a pasta dish.
Also, radishes have more uses than just in salads. The French enjoy radishes cooked slowly in butter. They can be eaten for breakfast or as a tasty side for any meat dish. For a typical Scandinavian treat, try slicing the radishes thinly, cook slowly in butter in a frying pan, and layering on thick, white bread with butter.
