"Very good, however I saute the onions in olive oil in lieu of butter, for a much more dramatic taste."

"This is a simple but flavorful way to give your veggies some oomph!! I've been using this cooking method for a while now - it's wonderful with the green peas, but also great with green beans and broccoli. No more water-logged boring veggies!! Try it!"
