Servings
8

Ingredients

  • 2 large (1 lb.) yellow bell peppers
  • 1 lb. yellow zucchini
  • 1 lb. very small baby carrots
  • 4 Tbs. unsalted butter or soy margarine
  • 1/4 tsp. white pepper

Preparation

Put whole bell peppers upright on cutting board. Using sharp knife, cut off 4 or 5 strips from top to bottom. This should leave top, bottom and seed core in one piece. Remove any white membranes, and cut strips into very thin slices about 2 1/2 inches long and 1/8 inch wide.

Pare skins off yellow zucchini lengthwise, and cut into matchsticks resembling pepper strips.

Peel carrots, if necessary, and cook in boiling water until tender, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

To serve, heat butter in heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat. Crush saffron, and add it to butter. Add salt, pepper and nutmeg. Do not let butter brown. Add vegetables, and cook 4 minutes, stirring gently or tossing in skillet. Remove from heat before peppers and zucchini wilt. Serve hot.
