    waterbaby09's Note:

    I made this recipe for Dîner en Blanc, because it is great served cold or hot. The veggies are layered in a Dutch oven and cooked without stirring until the beans are soft and tender.

      I was intrigued by the "no stirring" instructions when I found the recipe so wanted to try it. It worked! :-) I admit to omitting the mint out of personal preference, but we enjoyed the tart lemony flavor of this. Served with Crack'in Good Tuna Mornay for Fall 2012 Pick A Chef.
