   To prepare Vegetable Bundles: In a large skillet, cook
   green onion tops in small amount of boiling water,
   about 3 to 4 minutes or until just limp. Drain and
   cool.
   
   Gather beans, carrots, and peppers into 8 bunches,
   using an assortment of each. Carefully tie each bundle
   with a cooled green onion strip. Place bundles in a
   steamer basket and set in a large saucepan or skillet.
   Steam over boiling water 7 minutes or until vegetables
   are tender-crisp.
   
   To prepare Dijonaise Sauce: In saucepan over medium
   heat, melt butter, stir in flour, salt and pepper. Add
   milk. Cook and stir until the sauce is thickened and
   bubbly. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. Remove from
   heat and stir in mustard.
   
   Spoon sauce over steamed bundles. Or pool on a platter
   and arrange bundles over the sauce.
   
   From the Oregonian FOODday, 1/5/93.
