This was a fun, colorful side dish with supper tonight. I used a purple onion in place of scallion and forgot the lemon juice and didn't have chives and it was still delicious! It didn't take long to make once I julienned the vegetables. (The mandoline made that much easier than chopping by hand.) Thanks for posting!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the zucchini and carrots into very thin slices (the size of wooden matchsticks).
  2. Cut the scallions into thin slices, including a little of the green.
  3. In a medium-sized skillet, heat the oil.
  4. Add the carrots and begin to saute, stirring frequently.
  5. When they begin to soften, add the zucchini and scallions.
  6. (Add a tablespoon or two of water or broth, if needed).
  7. Since the heat should be rather high, do not add the garlic until the vegetables are almost done, or it may brown.
  8. Season with salt and pepper and add lemon juice to taste when the vegetables are crisp-tender.
  9. Sprinkle with basil and chives and serve immediately.
