Instructions

  1. Place the oil, mustard, juice, thyme, parsley, sugar and garlic in a small bowl and whisk until combined. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Boil, steam or microwave the zucchini, green beans, broccoli, carrot, capsicum and peas until just tender. Drain. Warm the cannellini beans in a saucepan, steamer or microwave.

Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Serve with rye bread (35g slice per serve). TIPS: You can use canned butter beans or lentils instead of cannellini beans. Steaming is the best way to cook vegies because it retains the maximum colour, nutrients and flavour. If boiling, be careful not to overcook them.
