Peas are one of my favorite foods. I’ve grown them in my garden for years. But — and I’m a little embarrassed to admit this — I had no idea you could eat the entire pea plant. At least in its first blush of youth, anyway. My work buddies let me in on the (not so very secret) secret yesterday, and this morning I pillaged my garden for shoots. Fantastic! Though I felt a little guilty for cutting some of the little stems’ lives short. Only the good die young, I guess.
