Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 200g mixed green vegetables (we used asparagus, broad beans and spring onions)

  • 215g can butter beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3 tablespoons green pesto
  1. Place the green vegetables in a medium-size saucepan, then pour over the stock. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until the vegetables are cooked through, about 3 minutes.
