Directions:

1

Simmer 2 to 3 quarts water in 2 wide skillets, each with a flotilla of sliced garlic, scallions or sliced onion, peppercorns, parsley and thyme sprigs, a teaspoon of olive oil, and a teaspoon of sea salt.

2

Use one pan for "difficult" vegetables, such as those that bleed (radishes) or aromatic cruciferous vegetables (radishes again and turnips). Use the other pan for the more neutral potatoes, carrots, squash, and celery. Start with the longest-cooking vegetables, such as potatoes and carrots, then add the quicker-cooking ones, such as zucchini, as you go along. Don't worry about each vegetable being utterly perfect. You can always remove them individually as they finish cooking.

3

When the vegetables are done, arrange them on a platter. Pour over a little of the broth from the pan in which the potatoes cooked. Spoon your best olive oil over all, and season with the sea salt, pepper, and chopped herbs.

Cooks' note:
Plan on 3/4 pound or more vegetables per person. Leftovers can be turned into a salad or joined with their broth to make a soup. You needn't have a lot of different vegetables—even a few are sufficient, and it can be a little of this or a lot of that.

Beans are best simply boiled and, if being served hot, lightly buttered or flavored with extra virgin olive oil. A nice variation is to toss the hot beans with herb butters, such as parsley butter or chervil or chive butter. Virtually any dried bean will work for this recipe. Part of the fun of cooking beans is experimenting with all the (sometimes brightly colored) varieties.

This is a mild-flavoured dish from fresh fish, with the olive oil, tomatoes, capers, and olive giving it a spectacular colour.
