Spinner
A MARIO BATALI RECIPE

Pea Greens with Toasted Garlic and Almonds


Ingredients

Serves 8 to 10 as side dish

Garlic
Olive Oil
scallions

1 1/2 pounds pea greens (tendrils with leaves)

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

4 scallions, whites and about 2 inches of the greens thinly sliced

1/2 cup sliced blanched almonds

Salt

Directions

Trim off and discard any tough ends of the pea tendrils. Rinse the trimmed pea greens in cold water and then drain them (do not use a spinner-you want to retain some water on the leaves).

 

In a 14-inch sauté pan, heat the olive oil over high heat. Add the garlic, scallions and almonds all at once, and cook, stirring constantly, until the garlic and almonds start to turn golden brown. (Longer is better than less).

 

Add the pea greens and cook, stirring, until they wilt and soften, about 3 minutes.

 

Season to taste with salt, and serve immediately.
