Spring Vegetable Medley

This is a delicious mix of veggies. The trick is to make sure your pan is smoking hot before you add anything.

I actually served it with broiled salmon, gnocchi, and a pan cream sauce.


1 half red onion, sliced

1 zucchini, sliced *not technically in season, but works great

1 cup green peas, fresh is possible. If frozen defrost in a bowl of cold water then dry

1 bunch of asparagus, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 T olive oil

kosher salt as desired


Heat a stainless steel or cast iron skillet to almost smoking hot

Add olive oil, swirl around pan to heat

Add onion, and stir for a about a minute to caramelize

Add asparagus and zucchini, continue to cook until golden

Add peas and garlic, stir and cook until golden

season to taste


The pan will have lots of goodness not the bottom. If you want a yummy sauce to accompany, remove cooked veggies to a bowl. Deglaze pan with 1 lemon juice and 1/2 cup  water. Stir to remove the Sucs from the pan. Reduce heat to low and add 1 cup of heavy cream and fresh herbs (I used parsley). stir until it simmers. Serve

This is the finished plate
