Allotment Vegetable Medley

This is a good way of using a mixture of garden produce when there is only a little of quite a few vegetables. It is a nice quick dish suitable for a first course or a light lunch. Below is a selection of vegetables that you might have at this time of year, but pick and mix as you like, depending on what you have.

Served with sausages or cold meats this is delicious and moist. You can add any other vegetables you like, most will work well (but perhaps not cucumbers). It also makes a very good sauce for pasta, barbecued meats and corn on the cob.
