The Instacart guide to pea sprouts

About pea sprouts

Pea sprouts are microgreens that grow from pea seeds. They have two small, frilly leaves that come from a straight stem. Pea sprouts are typically harvested when they reach 4 to 5 inches in height. Some people confuse pea sprouts with pea shoots and pea tips, and these terms get used interchangeably because they are similar parts of the legume. 

The pea sprout is the part of the plant closest to the seed, while the pea tips are the top of the plant and usually come in leafy bunches. These tips sometimes include pea flowers, which are also edible, and they have thicker stems than those found on the pea sprout. Because of their bright green leaves and fresh texture, pea sprouts make an attractive garnish and addition to salads.

You'll enjoy lots of nutritious benefits when eating pea sprouts. You can cook them or eat them raw. However, pea sprouts typically taste better raw, whereas pea tips are best cooked. Pea sprouts are very low in sodium, cholesterol, and saturated fat, making them ideal for a heart-healthy diet. In addition, they provide you with vitamin C, thiamin, niacin, copper, manganese, and folate. You'll also get an energy boost and improved immunity thanks to the vitamin B6 found in these tasty sprouts.  

Look for pea sprouts using the Instacart app. Because they're more commonly found in Asian specialty grocery stores, you might have trouble locating them in your usual market. You can also check the Instacart app to see if they're available at health food stores or stop by your local farmer's market!

If you like peas, you'll appreciate the sweet flavor of pea sprouts. They have a grassy texture that works well in salads when mixed with other greens. While you can enjoy pea sprouts on their own, their mild flavor makes them perfect for pairing with other foods. Add them to your next stir-fry for a unique twist on a classic Asian dish, or sprinkle them atop soup. 

Pea sprouts are also nice additions to sushi, giving your favorite roll a crispy touch. Ginger, garlic, and honey are complementary flavors that pair nicely in moderation with pea sprouts. These sprouts are available all year, but they grow best in cooler temperatures. Therefore, you're likely to find the highest-quality pea sprouts during the late winter and early spring months, as well as in late fall and early winter seasons.

FAQs About Pea Sprouts

While you should be able to find pea sprouts via the Instacart app, you can also grow them yourself if they're not available in your area. Pea sprouts are easy to grow at home, and you can produce them all year. You'll need pea seeds and just a few other household products to grow these succulent sprouts. Start by soaking the seeds overnight, then drain them and place them in a jar or seed sprouting container. 

The peas will begin to sprout in just a few days. You can consume the sprout and pea seed at this point or let them keep growing to get the delicious shoots and leaves.

Pea sprouts are the early stages of the pea's life cycle that you can pick and eat as soon as they start to grow. After they've sprouted and continued to grow, they're considered pea shoots.
