  • HEALTH

    Pea shoots are the second most popular microgreen. They are packed with vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber including A, C, E, B1, B2, B3, B6, protein, fiber, omega 3, and micronutrients! Because they are rich in iron, pea shoots prevent iron deficiency which leads to weakness and chronic fatigue. They are a great source of natural proteins which help to support healthy skin and muscle tissue. Full of Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, these tender shoots help lower stress and raise our immune system. They also aid in lowering blood pressure and are being studied for their ability to reduce oxidative stress that has been tied to the development of cancer.

    Please note that while microgreens have many potential health benefits, it is essential to consume them as part of a balanced diet and not rely on them as the sole treatment for any medical conditions. Always consult with your primary healthcare professional before making any changes to your diet.

  • TASTE

    This micro-veggie offers a sweet and tender taste, delicious whether eaten raw or cooked. Pea shoots are the second most popular variety of microgreen, popular for their fresh delicate texture and mild flavor. If you like alfalfa sprouts you will love pea shoots!!

  • USE

    When used in a salad, their grassy flavor and crisp texture can add a great foundation.  Combine them with chicken when making a quick Asian stir-fry.  Use them as a garnish on a soup, or blend them in a smoothie to bring in a mild flavor while adding fiber to your shake. Personally, I like to eat my pea shoots fresh with the addition of protein like cubed chicken or tuna fish with a little mayonnaise. That is it - fresh and filling. These microgreen peas have stolen my palate and my heart! Cooking microgreens may result in a loss of nutritional value.

  • STORAGE

    To help your shoots get their longest shelf, life store your microgreens in a dry, cool place. Wash them just before eating. Storing them in a resealable bag or container with a lid works well. Add a paper towel if needed to remove water. Do not store them wet.  Your microgreens should store for 7-14 days in the refrigerator.  Many find these greens stay fresh for up to 30 days!
