Don’t overcook these delicate vegetables — doing so turns them soggy and causes the pods to split open. To Prepare, rinse them under cold water, then slice off the tops and tails with a sharp knife if not already trimmed. If you wish you can shred them into strips with a knife. They are then ready to eat as-is, serve in a salad or cook in a stir fry.
