Known as dragon beans or winged beans, these odd-looking legumes have four spikes or “wings” with frilly edges, and they taste somewhere between a snow pea and an asparagus but with a succulent mouthfeel. Most places prepared them the same way: wok sautéed with fish sauce, garlic, scallions and a little citrus. This could easily become the trendiest vegetable in the States if someone can figure out how to grow them properly. I’d at least be a loyal customer.
