Prepare an ice-water bath; set aside. Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Blanch snap peas until bright green and crisp-tender, about 1 minute. Immediately transfer with a slotted spoon to ice-water bath to stop the cooking. Drain.
Transfer to a serving bowl. Add pea shoots, snap peas, lettuce, and radishes; set aside.
Prepare Warm Dressing
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Arrange pancetta in skillet in a single layer; cook, turning once, until crisp, about 12 minutes. Transfer with tongs to paper towels to drain.
Pour off all but 2 tablespoons fat (if skillet seems dry, add enough oil to total 2 tablespoons fat). Add onions; cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until tender, about 4 minutes. Add wine; cook until most of liquid has evaporated, about 2 minutes. Add cream, and cayenne, if desired. Cook until liquid is reduced by half, about 4 minutes.
Pour warm cream dressing over greens; toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper, and top with reserved pancetta.
Trim stalk ends of the green beans and snap peas. Blanch green beans in large pot of boiling water for 3-4 minutes, drain and place them directly into bowl with ice water to stop them from cooking further. Drain and set aside
Repeat with the sugar snaps, only blanch one minute
Roughly chop almonds, toast slightly on skillet or in the oven
In small mixing bowl, whisk together olive oil, garlic, orange zest and salt & pepper. Set dressing aside
Combine baby mustard greens, green beans, snap peas, and hot peppers in large mixing bowl then toss with dressing
Garnish with almonds and chives, seasoned as needed with sea salt and pepper. Enjoy!
Let's check #Zucchini off as our 31st veg! Though there are many veg we love that we haven't mentioned for #vegout2021, we hope you have had fun with us, discovered new veg & expanded your menus to a half plate of veggies with every meal. It's the fastest path to health!
We saved green beans for day 30 of #vegout2021 With dozens of cultivars, from broad, meaty Roma to thin, delicate French filet beans, pods can be round or flat, and come in multiple colors: green, purple, yellow, or mottled, so they don't have to be a predictable choice.
