    • 500g baby new potatoes, halved
    • Salt
    • A few sprigs fresh mint
    • 150g frozen peas
    • 150g frozen broad beans

    Method

    • Put the potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Add a pinch of salt and a sprig of mint. Bring to the boil and cook for 7-8 mins until almost cooked. Discard the mint.

    • Add the peas, beans and greens; mix well and bring back to the boil, cover and cook for a further 4-5 mins until everything is just tender. Drain well and leave to cool for about 20 mins.

    Top tip for making Warm salmon and minted vegetable salad

    Mint has quite a strong flavour, so for something less dominating, omit the herbs from the vegetable cooking water and toss a few leaves of ripped basil into the vegetables before serving.
