Maple peas, also known as pea sprouts, pea shoots, or dou miao, are a local favorite in Singapore! They have long, pale stems with tender leaves, and taste best stir fried. Pea shoots can also be enjoyed raw in pastas, sandwiches, as garnishes or in salads.
Sweet and delicate tasting, pea shoots pack a powerful nutrient punch, containing vitamin A, C as well as a myriad of other antioxidants and phyto-nutrients. Maple peas also have a high protein and fibre content.
Peas have to be soaked for 8-12 hours before sowing. Maple pea shoots grow fast and can be harvested in just one week's time, making them perfect for beginner gardeners or those who want to enjoy their delicacy fast. Easy to grow, and tastes fresher than any store bought pea shoots!
