Add the fennel, carrots and turnips, cover and steam for four minutes. Add the snow peas and leeks, cook an additional four minutes. Add the asparagus and steam a few minutes more. When the vegetables are tender, arrange them in individual soup plates. Quickly reduce the cooking liquid over high heat and pour over vegetables. Serves 4.
 
Comments: You can use any vegetable in this dish, even baby zucchini. The vegetables requiring the longest cooking time should be the first ingredients added to the pot.
