Spring Lamb Stew

This colorful version of lamb stew is made by adding vegetables to the basic stew recipe. The root vegetables can be glazed and added to the stew or they can be cooked in the stew, while the green vegetables are boiled or steamed and added to the stew just before serving.

1 recipe lamb stew
1 large carrot, peeled
1 pint pearl onions, boiled for 1 minute, rinsed with cold water and peeled
1/2 pound haricots verts or regular green beans or ½ cup fresh peas or frozen petite peas
  1. Cook the stew as directed.
  2. While it simmers, cut the carrots into wedges. Then add the carrots and onions to the stew during the last 30 minutes of cooking, or glaze the carrots and onions and add them to the stew just before serving.
