Prep time: 45 min • Cook time: 35 min • Yield: 4 to 6 servings

1 tablespoon ghee
1 large shallot, sliced into thin rounds
4 cups Chinese snow peas
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1 medium orange
2 tablespoons “Bird Seed” Spice Mix

Melt ghee in a sauté pan on medium low heat. Add shallots and immediately reduce heat to low. Caramelize slowly on very low heat for about 35 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.

Turn the heat up to medium high and toss snow peas into the same pan and cook for about 1 to 2 minutes to heighten the color and quickly cook them. They should still have crunch. Remove from heat and add sesame oil and toss to coat. Place on a serving platter.

Cut the orange in half and squeeze half over the snow peas. Slice the other half into half-moons and place around edges of platter. Top with caramelized shallots and sprinkle on the “Bird Seed” mix. Serve immediately.

Notes: You can use almost any other vegetable in place of the snow peas, i.e. snap peas, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, zucchini, summer or winter squash, etc. Just adjust the cooking time to the vegetable.
