Matignon Vegetable Mélange Garnish

Matignon is a classic term used in French cooking that refers to a combination of minced vegetables. Try it with your own choice of vegetables. A Matignon au gras includes bacon.


¾ cup white turnips, peeled and cut into ¼-inch cubes
¾ cup carrots, peeled and cut into ¼-inch diagonal slices
¾ cup string beans, trimmed
2 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons finely chopped shallots
¾ cup snow peas, trimmed and sliced in half on the diagonal
½ cup small yellow cherry tomatoes
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


1. Blanch turnips, carrots, and string beans in boiling salted water for about 2 minutes. Strain and reserve.

2. Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet and add the blanched vegetables and the shallots, stirring briefly over medium heat. Add the snow peas and cook until just wilted. Add the cherry tomatoes and continue to cook until they are warmed through but not softened. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
