It is incredible how different food can taste depending on how you cut it. I never cut carrots into rings, they taste so much nicer in little segments – almost diamond shaped and depending on what the accompaniments are, will depend on how I cut my potatoes for roasting. So no different then with baby marrows – rings or julienne of marrow just would not be right for this fabulous stir fry, ribbons it had to be.
Stir Fried Baby Marrow Ribbons
1 onion sliced
125g button mushrooms sliced
200g baby marrow ribbons (I used a vegetable peeler)
1 large clove garlic crushed
Salt and black pepper to taste
- Fry the onion and mushrooms in butter until the onion is translucent and the mushrooms are cooked.
- Add the baby marrow and vegetable spice and wilt down for one to two minutes.
- Stir through the garlic and add salt and pepper to taste.
I was thinking post the fact that a drizzle of soy sauce would have been a nice addition or possibly a couple of anchovies.
I love making ribbons from the zucchini – has a much sweeter taste I think 🙂
And it looks so pretty too. have a super weekend Tandy – I am missing reading your posts. 🙂
Looks so fresh and tender!
Thanks Angie – it is a lovely side dish. Have a fantastic weekend. 🙂
Preparing them this way makes such a pretty presentation. You very last words, about adding anchovies, really caught my attention. Any dish that includes anchovies is aces in my book. Yum!
Thanks ChgoJohn. I agree about anchovies – I often eat them straight from the bottle. Have a great weekend. 🙂
I second you👌👌👌👌👌
Those look gorgeous, why did i never think of that before! I won’t forget this one when those courgettes roll around again! c
Have an awesome weekend C – I really am missing reading your posts! See you soon again. 🙂
Next time I make my favorite zucchini with tomato sauce I’m going to try cutting them into ribbons.(http://worldplates.wordpress.com/2010/05/31/chicken-meatballs-and-zucchini/)
But first I’m going to try YOUR recipe, it sounds delish!
Hi Amy, thanks for stopping by. Your zucchini and tomato sauce sounds fantastic! Have a lovely weekend. 🙂
Look at how cute those ribbons are! Oh not only is the dish delicious but it looks so dainty and beautiful!
Aah, you are so kind Belle, thank you! Have a beautiful weekend. 🙂
This looks so pretty! What a fun dish to serve. It would no doubt impress. How could it not – those little ribbons are just so fun! 🙂 Have a great weekend Mandy.
Thanks so much Kristy. I am missing reading your posts – will be back next week sometime. Have a fantastic weekend. 🙂
You’re absolutely right, ribbons of zuchinni work perfectly in this dish. I do like to vary the cuts depending on the overall composition of the dish. This sounds and looks fabulous!
Pleased to know I am not the only one who cuts veggies according that what I am making. Have a fantastic weekend. 🙂
This looks very delicious. 🙂 And a quick and easy side dish as well!
Everything I make is on a quick and easy principle. 😉 Have a super weekend. 🙂
That looks fantastic.
Thanks so much Greg. Have a super weekend. 🙂
Hi Mandy! Nice idea to make ribbons out of your zucchini. They do look beautifully tender. I’m always amazed at the varieties of pastas available. More proof that texture matters.
It amazing how different foods can taste depending on what you do with them. Have a super weekend and looking forward to catching up with your blog next week again. 🙂
I agree, texture makes such a difference! Also, I’ve never heard zucchini called marrow before…how interesting!
Strange that we call something by a different name depending on where we are in the world. Have a great weekend and looking forward to catching up with you on your blog next week. 🙂
The ribbons would make this such a pretty dish for company. I even have an underused mandolin in my pantry… perfect!
A mandolin is perfect for slicing the zucchini! I am looking forward to reading more on your blog soon – this family tree is keeping me super busy at the moment but I am very close on finishing the bulk of it. Have a super weekend. 🙂
the presentation is gorgous….& DeLISHHHH!
I SO appreciate your gift. xx
I don’t always get the presentation right Kim but it does make a big difference to the appeal of a dish. have a super weekend. 🙂 xo
I agree so much with what you say about how you cut vegetables. Never liked carrots in rings either, yet I adore carrots! Looks like a lovely, light and full of flavour recipe Mandy 🙂
I thought I wasn’t the only one who thinks veggies taste different depending on how you cut them and how enjoyable they will be. Thanks Tanya. 🙂
So pretty, Mandy! We love zucchini/courgettes! 🙂
Thanks so much Celia. I was thinking of growing my own – they are frightfully expensive here at the moment. Have a fantastic Sunday. 🙂
I’ve never thought about this, but it’s so true. 🙂 Vegetables do taste so different depending on how they are cut. Lol. Great post. I adore these flavours. 🙂
Thanks Anna! Strange thing that hey. Have a fabulous week. 🙂
This looks like a very flavourful veggie dish, love it
