This really simple vegetable dish is what it is: Greens & Beans with Garlic & Basil Dressing. It was knocked up in a bit of a rush the other night making it up as I went. It’s a mix of those lovely flavours that just go brilliantly together plus one of those cans of beans…

Instructions
  1. Rinse the courgettes and chop off either end. Cut into long strips with a knife or (even easier) with a potatoe peeler. Prepare the asparagus by chopping off the bottom end and rinsing.
  2. Heat a skillet (or normal pan) with 1 tbsp olive oil to medium high heat.
  3. Season the courgettes and cook, tossing lightly, for about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and place in a serving dish.
  4. Add the asparagus spears to the pan ( there should be no need for more oil unless the pan is very dry). Cook for about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and place in the dish with the courgettes.
  5. Add the drained beans to the dish and gently mix to combine.
  6. Using a pestle and mortar - or just mixing in a bowl, blend two good tablespoons of oil, the basil, a sprinkling of salt, the lemon juice and the crushed garlic cloves. Drizzle over the vegetables and mix lightly.
  7. Serve up and enjoy.
