Shaved Zucchini Recipe
- 4 medium zucchini
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- to taste salt & pepper
- ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
- ¼ cup parmesan cheese
- Rinse the zucchini well and cut off the ends. Lay the zucchini down on the cutting board and use a vegetable peeler to shave it into ribbons. Once you’ve shaved down to the center of the zucchini, roll it ¼ the way around and start shaving again. Repeat this until you can shave no more.
- Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once it is hot, add the zucchini ribbons. Saute, stirring carefully, until the zucchini has softened and turned bright green (about 7-10 minutes). Season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes to taste.
- Use tongs to remove the zucchini ribbons from the skillet (there will be quite a bit of moisture in the bottom of the skillet) and place into serving bowls. Sprinkle with about 1 Tbsp of parmesan cheese per serving just before eating.
