Peas beans broccoli and spring cabbage HERO

Simmer the peas, beans, broccoli and cabbage individually in pans for 5-10 minutes each, or until tender. Drain, then quickly rinse under the cold tap and drain again.

Put the butter in a large pan and melt until it starts to foam, add a good squeeze of lemon and the vegetables, then toss everything together until hot and coated with the butter. Season with lots of black pepper and add another squeeze of lemon.
