RECIPE: Zucchini Ribbons


A simple and easy way to prepare zucchini; instead of pasta, I recently served this with Tomato glazed meatloaves (see other recipe posting).  

Ingredients (Serves 4)

4 medium size zucchini, kosher salt and pepper to taste


– Using a vegetable peeler, from top to bottom of each zucchini, slice the zucchini into ribbons.

– Place ribbons in a covered microwave safe dish

– Nuked them high for two minutes

– Drained the excess liquid (if any), and toss with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.

Notes: An old fashion vegetable peeler or mandoline works.  To turn zucchini into “spaghetti” style noodles, you will need a spiral slicer.  Enjoy the zucchini ribbons raw as a salad!  Enjoy (OO).
