Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Blanch the string beans in a large pot of boiling salted water for 1 minute only. Lift the beans from the water with a slotted spoon or sieve and immerse them in a bowl of ice water.
  2. Add the snap peas to the same boiling water and cook for 1 minute, until al dente, adding them to the ice water and the beans.
  3. Cut the asparagus into 2-inch lengths diagonally and cook in the boiling water for 2 minutes, and add to the ice water.
  4. Cut the broccolini in half, boil for 1 minute, and add to the ice water. When all the vegetables in the water are cold, drain well.
  5. When ready to serve, heat the butter and oil in a very large saute pan or large pot. Saute the shallots over medium heat for 5 minutes, tossing occasionally, until lightly browned.
  6. Add the drained vegetables to the shallots with 1/2 teaspoon salt and the pepper and toss. Cook just until the vegetables are heated through. Serve hot.

This is for me because I am a green vegetable lover. Did make a few adjustments (matter of taste) and added some fresh ginger and dillweed. Could not find broccolini (almost impossible where I live) but substituted broccoli crowns. Thanks for submitting.

I found these a bit too much trouble for the taste. I guess I like a bit of different colors in my veggies also. Sorry three stars are the best I can do.
