vegetable corner with jimmy the peanut.

It's snowing here.

As I may have mentioned, Jimmy the Peanut has a hard time finding vegetables that she likes to eat, so when we latch onto a preparation that works for her, it's worth jotting down. Tonight we had our failsafe salmon and Molly Stevens' braised endive, plus the following recipe which we've been making quite regularly. This is based on Tom Colicchio's suggestions in the Craft book.


sugar snap peas.


250 grams sugar snap peas
1 tsp orange zest, minced (optional)
1/2 cup chicken broth
3 tbsp butter
salt and pepper

Heat the chicken broth to a boil in a wok or deepish saucepan. Add the peas and orange zest and saute over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the liquid is almost gone, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the butter and black pepper and saute for another 2-3 minutes, until peas are still bright green but tooth-tender. Adjust for salt and serve.

Serves 2.
