Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 cup frozen pearl onions

  • 3 cups fresh asparagus, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 1 cup fresh carrots, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch coins

  • 1 cup fresh snow peas, stemmed

  • 1 cup frozen artichokes

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup frozen green peas

  • ½ cup thinly sliced green scallion tops (snipping with scissors works well)

  • Black pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Heat butter in a large, deep saute pan over medium-high heat. Carefully add pearl onions; saute until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat. (Can be prepared to this point a couple of hours ahead.)

  2. Add asparagus, carrots, snow peas, artichokes, salt and 1/2 cup water to pan. Return to high heat; cover and cook until vegetables start to steam. Steam, covered, until almost tender, about 5 minutes. Add peas; continue to steam until vegetables are just tender, about 1 minute longer. Stir in scallion tops, and season with pepper and more salt, if necessary. Serve immediately.
