Broccoli - Beans Salad

Salads don't necessarily have to be raw. Cooked ones are delicious; and we may use any of the following techniques: steaming, grilling and the easiest of all - flash cooking!
Flash cooking is an OPOS technique by Rama Krishnan that simulates stir-frying without the stirring!!! In his words. To flash cook means, to pressure cook at high heat for a short time with little or no water; and release pressure immediately. The results are dramatic. The colour, flavour and texture are simply too good to believe. Please read more about it here.
