A quick, easy side dish that melds the silkiness of zucchini with the crunch of carrots
  • 3 medium carrots
  • 2 zucchini
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 quarter-sized pieces of ginger
  • 3 tablespoons cooking oil
  1. Julienne the carrots and the zucchini into thick match-stick size. Put the carrots in a large bowl.
  2. Boil some water, and pour over the carrots. Leave to rest for 30s-1min, then fish out the carrots and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, heat up a wok with the oil and the ginger slices, until fragrant. Tumble the zucchini into the oil, give them a good whirl (30s or so). Put half the salt over the zucchini, mix well. Then add the carrots, the rest of the salt, and mix well. Taste and adjust salt levels.
  4. Take off the heat and serve.
