Sauteed Pea Tendrils

Hi, my name is Tara and I'm a CSA Shareholder in Wynnewood, PA. My family (husband + 2.5 year old) is new to the CSA this year and really excited to try some interesting things while supporting our local farmers.

I don't know about you, but I had never heard of a pea tendril before last week's delivery. Google to the rescue! Here's a winner, should you find yourself with some pea tendrils in the future. Recipe can be found here.

Sauteed Pea Tendrils
6 Servings

2 tbsps olive oil
4 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tbsps butter
1lb pea tendrils

Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic; cook until golden, about 2 minutes. Discard garlic. Add butter, then pea tendrils. Cover; cook just until wilted, stirring often, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Since we received a much smaller portion of pea tendrils, I reduced the quantities and served as a small side dish.
