Harvesting delicious mange tout now

By Angie, Jul 3 2013 02:54PM

One of my personal favourite crops to harvest is mange tout. I grow three types - Oregon Sugar Pod, Sweet Golden Mange Tout and Shiraz purple podded.


This makes for a lovely contrast to the usual green only varieties available commercially and also adds some lovely colour to dishes.


Prolific croppers, affected by little pests, quick and easy to cook - what is not to love about mange tout?


I love to either steam them or use them in stir fry recipes.


One of my favourites is Stir-fried mange tout with sesame seeds.


Stir-fried mange tout with sesame seeds


200 g mange tout

2 tsp sesame seeds

2 clove(s) minced garlic

2 tbsp vegetable oil

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 tsp pepper

1 tsp sugar


Dry fry the sesame seeds to toast them until golden brown. Set aside. Add the oil into the pan and sauté the garlic. Remove from the pan. Place the mangetout into the pan and stir-fry over high heat for one minute. Return the garlic. Season to taste with soy sauce, sugar and pepper.


Serve sprinkled with sesame seeds.
