Simple vegetable dishes are healthy and bolster any meal, but if you’re tired of the same old steamed or roasted flavours, reach for the mustard. Just a little — in just about any vegetable dish — can transform it beautifully.

A good, grainy mustard adds both a kick of flavour and texture just by mixing a spoonful in. You can use a plain grainy mustard, or step it up a notch with a flavoured or spicy one for even more layers. Cook your vegetables as normal, whether you plan to steam, roast or anything else, then just before serving or packing them up, toss with a little mustard. If you want to tone down the mustard’s tang, also add agave nectar or a touch of honey. This technique is perfect for spicing up dishes like green beans, steamed broccoli and roasted cauliflower or Brussels sprouts.
