Russ's Vegetable Melange

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 10 mins

My husband Russ has been making this lately when we have odd veg in the fridge. I think he's almost got it right as his one was great. We actually planned to make coleslaw, but the weather turned cold and we had to re-think dinner. This was great with roast chicken. The last time he made this, he used leek instead of onion. Feel free to vary the veg.

WOW Russ and Jan these are fabulous! hat a nice way to present the veggies for dinner. The only way this can get better is when the veggies come from my garden and not the store. I will use this recipe regularly. I may try this over the coals wrapped in foil and see how that works. Will keep you posted. Lovely. Made for AUS/NZ Swap 39

Fabo way to use up any vegetables and it imparts such a lovely flavour. I too added extra mustard our preference and I also used most of the veg listed, but I also added broccoli and cauliflower and like Jan had mentioned in her note I used a leek. This is so simple to make and is a fantastic way to prepare a vegetable side. Even my son who eats his veg but they are never his favourite, absolutely loved them. Cheers Jan for another great recipe.

I used cabbage! :D I managed to use the same vegetables as used here, and added a cup of sliced mushrooms, needed to use them, but this certainly would work with just about any veggies. I was quite generous with the mustard, since I like it, unfortunately that made it a bit too strong for DD2, who doesn't. All the more for me! Easy, tasty and quick, a lovely way to add some interest to your veg! Thanks, Jan and Russ!
