    echo echo's Note:

    A way to use up leftover cooked vegetables--you can use one vegetable or a mixture. The marinade has three of my favorite flavors: thyme, garlic and hot pepper sauce. I like to use a hot pepper sauce that is reasonably hot, but not so hot that the pepper taste gets lost in the sheer hotness of it. Since I don't use a lot of salt myself, I make sure to serve with salt and pepper so others can adjust these seasonings to their taste. Preparation time does not include marinating time. I like them best made a day ahead and marinated overnight, but you could probably get away with a much shorter time than that.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      If any of the vegetables were originally cooked with butter or other seasonings, quickly (about 30 sec) immerse them in boiling water and remove; you'll have to do this in batches. I use a common fold-up metal vegetable steamer for this but with enough water heated in the pan to cover the veggies; you could also just use a strainer if you have one the right size.
    2. 2
      Immediately dip vegetables into cold water to stop from over-cooking, then pat dry.
    3. 3
      Whisk 2 Tbs water with the vinegar thru salt to combine.
    4. 4
      Whisk in oil in a slow steady stream.
    5. 5
      Refrigerate, covered, overnight.
    6. 6
      Serve at room temperature.

      Great dish. I steamed some green beans (the microwaveable kind), threw it together in no time and had it marinating while I was preparing the rest of the meal. Everyone loved it. Thank you.

      The marinade is so good. I steamed some baby green beans to make this dish and placed them in the refrigerator overnight. When serving, I topped the vegetables with some freshly grated parmesan cheese. This is going to be a standard in our home especially during the hot months ahead. I can't wait to make it with broccoli and carrots
