Sauteed Pea Tendrils (Pea Tips)

Scroll to recipe

If you’ve never eaten pea tips or pea tendrils before, they taste like peas.  It’s pretty cool actually.  However, I had never cooked or prepared them before.  I looked around the internet and decided to just keep it extra simple and sautee them with olive oil and salt.  That’s it.  I was definitely in a more minimalist mood as the week progressed.  The flavor of the pea tendrils changed a lot when they were cooked though.  They went from tasting just like peas to having this stronger earthy flavor.  It was really good and I’ll definitely do it again.


Delightful Recipe

Serves 4


  • 1 large bunch of pea tendrils, stalky ends removed and chopped into 2 inch pieces
  • olive oil
  • salt to taste


  • Heat 1 Tablespoon of olive oil over high heat in a non-stick pan.
  • When oil gets shimmery, add pea tendrils.  Saute until wilted and tender but still crisp.
  • Season with salt.



I love all the recipes and the vegetables looks so beautiful and so fresh!
