fine and slender almost translucent pods of mange
tout (from the French for 'eat all') contain very
young tiny tender peas. The whole mange tout pod is
eaten and they have a crisp texture with a flavour
similar to peas. Look for bright green, crisp pods.
How To Use Mange Tout
tout can be served raw or cooked. Include raw mange
tout in salads or serve with a selection of mixed
raw vegetables as crudité with dips. They
can be served as a side dish or included in stir-fries.
How To Prepare Mange Tout
tout need very little preparation, simply wash and
top and tail if the ends are tough.
How To Cook Mange Tout
tout can be steamed or stir-fried. To steam, place
the prepared mange tout in a steamer and cook for
3 - 4 minutes or until just tender. Do not overcook
or they will lose their flavour and crunchy texture.
To stir fry, heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan,
add the mange tout and stir fry for 2 - 3 minutes
or until just tender.
How To Store Mange Tout
