I've received an unexpected gift of peashoots. How best to enjoy them?

very hot peanut oil + generous heaping of minced garlic + peashoots + salt. stir-fry till shoots are tender. add lashing of sesame oil. serve. you could blanch the peashoots first briefly if you like--the stalks can be a little tough.

What he said. That's how I get them at NY Noodletown and how I cook them at home, and I see not reason to do otherwise.

If the stems/stalks are thick, yes, they can be a bit tough. You can also add a splash of water to the pan and cover it to steam briefly. But if they're very young, not a problem.
