Westlands UK Pea Shoots
We grow our full range here in the Vale of Evesham, UK. Housed safely in our glasshouses, our range of Micro Leaves are protected from the good old British weather, meaning we can grow them all year round! We grow three different Pea Shoot Micro Leaves – Tendril Pea Shoots, Minted Pea Shoots, and Salad Pea Shoots.
Tendril Pea Shoots
Tendril Pea Shoots are slender and delicate greens with curly tendrils, making them perfect for garnishing or adding texture to your dishes. They have a mild taste that is slightly sweet but fresh, making them perfect for a variety of dishes. Tendril Pea Shoots pair well with cheese-based dishes, pizzas, sandwiches, soups, and salads. They are also great for adding some greenery to your drinks.
Minted Pea Shoots
Minted Pea Shoots are perfect for those who love a little bit of freshness and zing in their dishes. With a refreshing flavour, they work great with pasta, meat dishes, roasted vegetables, and salads. Minted Pea Shoots provide a twist of flavour that can elevate your dishes without overpowering them.
Salad Pea Shoots
Last but not least, Salad Pea Shoots are the perfect addition to any salad. They have a fresh and crunchy texture that adds a depth of flavour and texture to your dish. These Pea Shoots are excellent when mixed with other vegetables such as tomatoes, cucumbers, and bell peppers. They are also great when used in a grain bowl or as a sandwich topping.
Westlands UK Pea Shoots are a fantastic way to add flavour and texture to your dishes. The possibilities are endless! Experimenting with different combinations will only allow you to unlock their full potential. Give these Pea Shoots a try by adding them to your next dish—You won’t be disappointed.
