Method

 
Bring a large saucepan of salted water to boil. Blanch all the vegetables for 3 minutes. Remove, refresh in a bowl of cold water and drain in a colander. Divide baby marrows, beans, corn, peppers and carrots into 4 piles. Wrap 1-2 spinach leaves around each pile, folding them so that tips of vegetables stick out. Secure with thin kitchen string, raffia or chives. Place parcels in a sieve or bamboo streamer over boiling water. Cover and steam for 3 to 4 minutes. Serve warm or cool.
