Sweat The Side Dish

img_1698

Being excited by the warm raw flavor of vegetables that I sweat is a special experience. When I sweat the pieces of squash over just less than medium heat, they are firm but not crisp. The butternut squash reminds me of pumpkin and the flavor is sweet. Leeks and zucchini give this side dish more texture and flavor. I add the peas during the last minute of cooking. They are soft and filled with fresh sweet flavor.

  • Ingredients
    • 2 cups butternut squash, large dice
    • 1/2 leek, cut lengthwise and chopped
    • 1/2 cup zucchini, medium dice
    • 1/2 cup fresh peas
    • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Instructions
    • Heat the butter and olive oil on just less than medium heat
    • Sweat the butternut squash for about 10 minutes, until the pieces are firm but not crisp
    • Add the leeks and sweat the vegetables for about 2 minutes
    • Add the zucchini and sweat the vegetables for about 2 minutes
    • Add the peas and sweat the vegetables for about 1 minute
    • Put the vegetables in a bowl and serve
