Yummmm! I didn't have any of these vegetables--or the fresh thyme for that matter. I used regular chopped carrot, green beans, shredded cabbage, bok choy, summer squash and cherry tomatoes. For the fresh herb I used 2 sprigs of rosemary. There wasn't any lemon either--yet still: My God what a treat! Even my finicky son liked it. And it goes with just about anything!
