Pea Shoot Sweet Potato Stir Fry

I don’t know about you, but when I make dinner, I always need to include something green.  

Not only does green typically mean it’s vitamin packed, but it always makes the plate look so pretty! So complete!

As often as I throw together a quick salad, I make a delicious stir fry.  This one I made in twenty minutes with ingredients I happen to have on hand.  I think this is the best way to make a stir fry!

This one was too good not to jot down.  So here you go . . . a quick and easy, super tasty, beautiful green side dish to balance your meal! 

This would also be a lovely Spring dish to add to your Easter table!


  • Olive or Grapeseed oil for the pan
  • 2 medium shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely minced garlic
  • 1 medium-sized yellow sweet potato, peeled and cut into thin, bite sized pieces
  • 8 ounces Snow Pea Shoots, washed dried, and roughly chopped into bite sized pieces
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Serves 4
  • Total Prep and Cooking Time: 20 minutes

Heat a large skillet with the oil and add the onion and garlic.  Over medium heat, cook until the onions are soft, about 2 minutes.

Add the potatoes and cook until they are beginning to brown and are tender, about 5 minutes or so.

Add the Add the pea shoots and cook just to wilt them, about 3 minutes.  

Stir in the peas, and season to taste with salt and pepper.  

An additional note:

Snow Pea Shoots are absolutely divine! You can get them washed, dried, and ready to use from Jade Asian Greens.
