Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients:
3 Zucchini
2 Tablespoon(s) Butter
2 Tablespoon(s) Olive oil
6 Young carrots
3 Basil leaves, washed
patted dry and chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste
Tomato wedges
Whole basil sprigs
Directions:
"The tiny bush basil leaves are a perfect size to sprinkle whole over
crunchy vegetables. Or chop whole sweet basil leaves, adding them off
the heat to retain color and flavor." Wash zucchini and cut into 1/4"
strips. Put zucchini strips in colander; sprinkle with salt. Let
stand 10 minutes to extract bitter juices. Meanwhile, melt butter in
a heavy skillet. Add oil and heat. Rinse zucchini under running cold
water and thoroughly pat dry. Peel carrots and cut into 1/4" strips.
Add carrots to skillet; saute 6 to 7 minutes, stirring, over high
heat, or until barely tender crisp. Turn heat down to medium and add
zucchini. Cook, stirring, another 4 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in
chopped fresh basil. Add salt and pepper. Spoon onto heated serving
platter. Garnish with tomato wedges and whole basil sprigs. Yield: 4
to 6 servings. From _Nancy Enright's Canadian Herb Cookbook_ by Nancy
