  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. (Or lightly coat pan with cooking spray.)
  4. Add the vegetable ribbons, stir; cover with a tight-fitting lid and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until vegetables are tender but not overcooked.
  5. Remove from heat, add pepper and salt, if desired, and serve immediately.
  6. Option: To make vegetable coins instead of ribbons, cut zucchini and carrot into thin slices. Add 1/4 cup water to the pan; cover and cook 5 to 8 minutes.
Preparation tip:
  • To make vegetable coins instead of ribbons, cut zucchini and carrot into thin slices. Add ¼ cup water to the pan; cover and cook 5 to 8 minutes.
Tips: 
  • Colorful. Low in calories. Fun to make and eat. What more could you want from a vegetable?
  • Look for medium size fruit with skin that is shiny and free of pitting. It may look scratched, but shouldn’t have soft spots.
