This is one of my favourite sides, and makes such a nice change from steamed veg, which is my usual go-to. Any summery or green veg is welcome, as they are quick-cooking and go well together.
I mostly use broccoli, zucchini, cherry tomato, capsicum and snow peas but you can use whatever you have in your fridge - a great way of using up things that might otherwise be on their way out. And steamed zucchini - EW. This is a hundred times nicer!
Start by chopping all your veg into similar sized pieces and leaving your cherry tomatoes whole.
Pop the broccoli in a hot pan with a little water and put the lid on for a minute or two. Take the lid off, add olive oil and cherry tomatoes. When they're softened a little, add the quicker-cooking veg - the zucchini, capsicum and snow peas in this instance. A minute or two before they're done, add a clove of garlic.
When all is crisp-tender, squeeze over the juice of one lime and a good sprinkle of cracked black pepper.
You will love me.
