  • Clean the beans by breaking off both ends as you wash them
  • Peel the carrots and cut into matchsticks
  • Steam the beans and carrots leaving them firm to the bite (about 3 minutes) then cool
  • While the beans and carrots are steaming, prepare the fennel by cutting off the fennel stalks and peeling off any wilted outer layers, then shave the fennel
  • Whisk together apple cider vinegar, parsley, water, olive oil, maple syrup/agave nectar and garlic
  • Place beans, carrots and fennel into a large bowl and toss with the marinade, and then season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight, tossing couple of times in-between, this allows the vegetables absorb the delicious flavours from the marinade
  • Serve warm or room temperature
