Crisp vegetables get Asian flair in this easy marinated vegetable recipe. We use green beans, carrots and broccoli, but feel free to use 4 cups of whatever vegetables you have on hand. Serve as an appetizer or on top of your next bowl of ramen.

  • 1⅓ cups trimmed green bean pieces (1- to 2-inches)
  • 1⅓ cups sliced carrots
  • 1⅓ cups small broccoli florets

  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger

  1. Cook green beans, carrots and broccoli in a small pot of boiling water until crisp-tender, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a bowl of ice water to cool. Drain, pat dry and transfer to a medium bowl.
  2. Whisk oil, vinegar, tamari (or soy sauce), scallion and ginger together in a small saucepan and heat until steaming. Pour the marinade over the vegetables, stirring to coat.
  3. Cover and refrigerate, stirring occasionally, for at least 2 hours and up to 5 days. (The green beans and broccoli will start to discolor after several hours of marinating, but will still taste yummy.)
  • To make ahead: Marinate vegetables for up to 5 days.
  • People with celiac disease or gluten-sensitivity should use soy sauces that are labeled "gluten-free," as soy sauce may contain wheat or other gluten-containing sweeteners and flavors.
