Greens with peanut sauce, Japanese style

Many green veggies are suitable for this dish.  The original recipe uses Watercress, but I used Broccolini.  Green French beans, Asparagus or even Spinach would work well.  Again it can be served as part of a Japanese meal or as a side to any dish.

2 small bunches of Broccolini,  or about 500 g of preferred green vegetable.
Steam in Varoma until tender.  With the Broccolini,  I first started with the stalks and added the green tips for the last 10 minutes.
While greens are steaming,  mix in a large bowl,
4 tablespoons of Crunchy Peanut Butter
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
2 tablespoons Mirin

Tip hot veggies over the sauce and fold in with spoon until well coated.

This reheats well in the Microwave
Makes a nice meal with sushi  rice.
