Pea shoot quandary

I’ve got a hankering for some greens. When I was in Chinatown last weekend, I impulsively picked up some pea shoots without having any clue as to how to prepare them. I’ve had pea shoots before as a side dish, Chinese style with oyster sauce, but I’ve been eating a lot of oyster sauce and soy sauce lately and I’d like to try something different. Any suggestions for non-Chinese flavored prep of pea shoots with chicken?

I am considering Indian flavors – maybe some cumin, turmeric, coriander powder and some garam masala. Should I cream the pea shoots or serve them simply, wilted with salt and pepper? I wish I had some saffron at home…
