Vegetable Ribbons Recipe
Simple elegance best describes this fresh-tasting farm dish. It's a great use of the late summer harvest. —Patty Singstock, Racine, Wisconsin
- 3 medium carrots, peeled
- 2 medium zucchini
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley, divided
- 1. Using a vegetable peeler, cut the vegetables lengthwise into very thin strips.
