Steamed Vegetable Ribbons

Graceful ribbons of carrot and zucchini make a dramatic side dish that's surprisingly easy to make; just use a vegetable peeler to carve long paper-thin strips and steam until tender-crisp.

Serves 4

Prep Time 15 min

Total Time 20 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 large carrots, peeled
  • 3 small zucchini
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Cooking Directions

Step 1

With a swivel vegetable peeler, shave carrots lengthwise into wide ribbons. Repeat with zucchini, shaving long, wide strips from all sides until you reach the seedy core. Discard the core.

Step 2

Bring 2 inches of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Add the carrots; cover and steam for 2 minutes. Place the zucchini over the carrots; cover and steam until the vegetables are just tender, 2 to 3 minutes more. Transfer the vegetables to a large bowl. Toss with oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
