  • 2 cloves garlic

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.

  4. Set a large skillet over medium heat and add the butter. Once melted, add the onions, carrots, a celery. Sauté the vegetables, stirring frequently with a rubber spatula, for 7-8 minutes, until they are softened and translucent. Add the minced garlic and sauté for 30 seconds longer, just until fragrant.
  5. Add the frozen corn and peas to the skillet and stir for 30 to 1 minute to defrost.
