  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 bunch thin asparagus ends trimmed if tough
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 small leek dark-green leaves trimmed, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rounds (about 1 cup)
  • 1 bunch spinach stems trimmed
  • 4 ounces sweet baby peas
  • Pinch freshly ground pepper


  • Heat a 12-inch non-stick skillet over medium high heat until oil is hot. Add asparagus and salt and saute turning frequently until just getting tender, about 5 minutes. Remove asparagus to a plate.
  • Return skillet to heat, and melt butter. Add leek, and cook until just tender, about 2 minutes. Add spinach and peas, season with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and the pepper; cover, and cook until spinach is wilted and peas are tender, about 3 minutes. Turn the vegetables out of the skillet over asparagus, and serve immediately.
