Crossword Genius

Having drunk beer, cook a light vegetable (5,9)


I believe the answer is:

globe artichoke

'vegetable' is the definition.
(globe artichoke is a kind of vegetable)

'having drunk beer cook a light' is the wordplay.
'having drunk' indicates anagramming the letters (I've seen 'have drunk' mean this (I've seen this in other clues)).
'beercookalight' anagrammed gives 'GLOBE ARTICHOKE'.

(Other definitions for globe artichoke that I've seen before include "Flower head used as vegetable" , "plant" , "Blooming head" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
