Let the natural flavour of vegetables do the talking. This is a simple vegetable sauté but the combination of flavours is gorgeous and the colour stunning.
cup sugar snap peas, trimmed
cup Brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half
orange pepper, cut into strips
coarse salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste
Bring a medium pot of salted water to boil. Add the Brussels sprouts and boil on high for about 7 minutes or until tender. With a slotted spoon remove sprouts to a bowl. Return pot to heat. Bring water back to the boil and add the snap peas. Cook peas for 3 minutes and strain, add peas to bowl with sprouts.
Heat butter in a skillet on high heat and add the strips of pepper. Sauté for 3 minutes. Add the peas and the sprouts and toss lightly just until shiny. Season with salt and pepper and serve with your favourite meat or fish dish. Yield: Serves 4
