Method

  1. In a small bowl, combine the onion, sugar and vinegar. Give the mixture a good stir, then set aside while you cook the veg.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp of the olive oil in a frying pan set over a high heat. Add the coriander seeds (or ground coriander) and garlic, cook for 30 seconds, then add the courgette. Stir-fry for 1 minute.
  3. Add the green beans with 3 tbsp water, cover with a tightly fitting lid and steam for 3 minutes. Add the peas and continue steaming for a further minute, or until cooked through but still vibrantly green.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in the red onion and vinegar mixture, along with the remaining oil and chopped coriander. Serve immediately.

Tip: For a great light lunch idea, crumble some feta over this dish and serve with crusty bread.
