- 2 tbs honey
- 2 tbs vinegar
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1 tsp reduced-salt soy sauce
- 1 fresh ginger, finely chopped
- Slice vegetables to same size for even cooking.
- Steam vegetables for 6-8 minutes or microwave on HIGH (100%) for 3-4 minutes until crisp but tender.
- Place dressing ingredients in a saucepan and simmer over low heat until honey dissolves, or microwave on HIGH (100%) for 1 minute.
- 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.
