Okay, I admit it, I started the ball rolling. But, Maeve C. gave us some awesome props in a recent review on the Yelp! site.
In fact, several people have raved about the asparagus peas since we brought them in and turned them on to yet another “Future Food” for Cascadia. Reports from our intrepid and most excellent customers note they taste like a cross between asparagus and artichoke. I cooked mine up in a breakfast curry w/ shovel-cut potatoes and some okra, so mine tasted a bit like okra and fenugrek, but still quite yummy. The Turtle Gal said they were best under about 2-3″, and I’d agree, which is why I know chuck the big ones into the compost.
You p’bly ought to check out Maeve C’s other reviews on Yelp! if you want the opinion of someone who clearly has good taste. This is most especially true if you’re a vegan or vegetarian.
