- 2 pounds pea shoots
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil

1. Wash pea shoots and trim any tough stems. Heat oil in a wok or large, heavy frying pan, over medium heat. Throw in ginger, garlic salt and pea shoots. Cook, moving constantly with tongs so that they cook evenly, 1 to 2 minutes, or just until thoroughly wilted. Serve immediately.
