January 30

Since getting a cold a week ago all I've wanted to eat is vegetables. I've been vegetarian for a year, so it hasn't been a big change, but for a week now vegetables have been pretty much the ONLY things I've wanted to ingest. Veggie soup, curried veggies, salads, and tonight, a ragout of baby potatoes, asparagus, carrots, pearl onions, artichokes, shallots and garlic. Ahhhh.

Sure mithi ... here it is:

2 teaspoons olive oil
1 shallot, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 pound small white potatoes, scrubbed and halved
1 cup baby carrots
1 cup frozen pearl onions
1 cup vegetable broth
1 cup water
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 teaspoon browning and seasoning sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 bay leaf
1 can water-packed artichoke hearts, drained and cut in half
1 bunch fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2-inch lengths

Heat oil in nonstick saucepan over medium heat. Add shallot and garlic, cook about 2 mins. Add potatoes, carrots and onions. Cook 2-3 mins. Stir in the broth, water, wine, seasoning sauce, sugar, salt and bay leaf; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until the veggies are almost tender, about 15 mins. Add artichokes and asparagus. Simmer, uncovered, until asparagus is tender, about 5 mins. Discard bay leaf and serve.
