Fresh Marinated Vegetables

User Rating:  / 1


4 cups mixed vegetables

2/3 cup olive oil

1/3 cup white wine

1/4 cup white wine vinegar

1/2 cup chopped onions

3 garlic cloves -- minced

1/4 teaspoon thyme

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

black pepper -- to taste

1 cup fresh parsley -- finely chopped

* You will need a total of 4 cups fresh vegetables cut into bite-sized

pieces. Some good choices are: green beans, broccoli flowerettes,

cauliflower, red and green bell peppers, whole baby carrots, zucchini

and hearts of celery.

Combine all ingredients except 1/2 cup parsley in a large, heavy pot.

Add about 1 inch of water. Cover tightly and cook over medium heat until vegetables are just tender but still crisp. This will take 10-12 minutes at most. Keep a watch near the end. I've cooked away all the water and burned the vegetables more than once ;)

Remove from heat, remove cover, and let vegetables cool in the pot.

When cool, transfer to serving dish.

Cover; chill to allow flavors to blend.

Bring to room temperature to serve; top with remaining parsley.
