salt and pepper to taste
Thoroughly wash the pea tendrils (Be thorough. These greens tend to attract bugs).
Heat the oil in a large saute pan. Add the garlic and saute until soft, about one minute.
Add the pea tendrils and saute for an additional 2-3 minutes. (The leaves should still be vibrant green but soft.)
Season with salt and pepper then remove pan from heat and mix in the water before transferring the tendrils to a serving dish.
*You can substitute with avocado oil or, if you're feeling adventurous, try sautéeing the greens in duck fat.
