Stir Fried Baby Marrow (Courgette/Zucchini) Ribbons

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)
Vegetable spice
1 large clove garlic crushed
Salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Fry the onion and mushrooms in butter until the onion is translucent and the mushrooms are cooked.
  2. Add the baby marrow and vegetable spice and wilt down for one to two minutes.
  3. 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.
