1/4 Cup finely chopped Shallots

3 Tbsp unsalted Butter (or fat of your choice)

2 lbs Asparagus, ends trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces

1 1/2 lbs of peas in their pod, also cut into 1 inch pieces

1/2 Tsp Sea Salt

1/4 Tsp fresh ground Pepper

3/4 Cup Basil, chopped thinly


1) Cook Shallots in butter in a 12″ pan over medium heat.  Stir frequently until tender, about 4 minutes.  They will smell amazing…


2) Stir in Asparagus, Peas, Sea Salt and Pepper and cover.  Cook until veggies are tender, but still slightly crisp, about 8 minutes.  Remove from heat, stir in Basil and enjoy!
