English Peas, Asparagus, Cauliflower – Oh My!



The deal was too good to pass up “2 pounds of English peas for $1.” The old saying is true “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” Two pounds of English peas equaled two cups shelled, and this was not enough to feed us and a summer guest. Looking in the fridge I notice a hobbit stalk of cauliflower and a little human hand sized handful of asparagus. I had no clue why I saved these bits. I did, however, know what to make- a summer vegetable medley. Bon Appetit

  • 1 small head cauliflower
  • 2 pounds of English peas, shelled
  • Asparagus
  • Olive oil
  • 1 tabeloon of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of minced garlic

Add all ingredients to a skillet with a little olive oil, butter and garlic, and sprinkle with HerbnFarm NW Lemon Pepper. Cook until vegetables turn a golden brown four to six minutes , add a splash of wine to deglaze, and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice to brighten up the dish.
