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.
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.
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.
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.
