This is such a easy healthy low fat vegetable side dish that is very tasty. You could use french beans as well. Cooking time will vary with which method you cook with.

  2. Heat a non stick pan that has been sprayed with olive oil and cook the capers, stirring them until they are lightly browned.
  3. Add the lemon juice, peas and beans and stir until vegetables are hot.
  4. Stir in the dill.

What a great combination of vegetables fresh from the garden; soft beans and crunchy peas. I subbed basil for the dill and probably cut back on the lemon juice a bit.

Very nice combination of flavours. I made the recipe as written, but added freshly ground black pepper and some fried pancetta cubes. Thanks Latchy.
