I loved this, I used fresh broad beans as they had them in the shop and just cooked them for 1 min then podded them then chucked them in for 30 seconds at the end to reheat. I drained the lemon juice off the courgette before mixing everything together as there was a lot of juice in the bottom of the bowl. I had it with a spring fish pie and everyone thought it was great and a fab change to normal boiled veg (the lemon complimented the fish really nicely)
