Not keen on greens? You will be when you drizzle them with this honey soy dressing!


  • 6 cups assorted green vegetables in season
  • 2 tbs honey
  • 2 tbs vinegar
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt-reduced soy sauce
  • 1 fresh ginger, finely chopped


  1. Slice vegetables to same size for even cooking.
  2. Steam vegetables for 6-8 minutes or microwave on HIGH (100%) for 3-4 minutes until crisp but tender.
  3. Place dressing ingredients in a saucepan and simmer over low heat until honey dissolves, or microwave on HIGH (100%) for 1 minute.
  4. Drain vegetables and toss through dressing. Serve immediately.

Good choices for green vegetables include zucchini, leek, celery, aspargaus, green beans, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, green capsicums, snow peas and bean-shoots. A great way to empty your refrigerator crisper, or to introduce new varieties of vegetables to the family.

    HI Penny. I wish I had a special "yummy vegetarian" tag! It's been fixed, thanks for taking the time to let us know about these mistakes. -AF

    This should not be tagged 'vegan'. Having honey as an ingredient simply makes it yummy vegetarian.
