I came home ravenous from Pilates yesterday. But I didn't want to start raiding the cupboards for "whatever" - I wanted a healthful lunch. On Sunday, I found organic pea shoots at Trader Joe's - they come in a 4 oz. clam shell container, and if you haven't tasted these, they taste like springtime. That's them up there in the picture - they're delicate, yet crunchy, and they're a glorious green color. What's more, they're super low-cal and they pack a nutritional punch, too. Per serving, pea shoots have 7 times more vitamin C than blueberries, 8 times more folic acid than bean sprouts, and 4 times more vitamin A than tomatoes.
I whipped up this delicious little salad in 10 minutes, and now you can, too.
