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.
