Zucchini Carpaccio and a Giveaway

Zucchini Carpaccio. A fresh, delicious and simple Vegetarian appetiser(appetizer).

GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED

Have you been watching Masterchef this year? I have been following along when my TV decides it wants to! Our rental has a terrible TV signal so some days I get home and we only have two channels, everything else is snow. Or worse still I get a glitchy picture with disjointed sound. It is like the TV is teasing me!!! I can kind of see what is going on but not quite!

Zucchini Carpaccio. A fresh, delicious and simple Vegetarian appetiser(appetizer).

Today I have a great vegetarian recipe for you, it works perfectly as a starter (appetiser/appetizer – call it what you will) or could be served as a side salad or sharing platter. AND thanks to MasterChef I am giving away a great little tool that will help you create culinary perfection. Today I have 5 MasterChef Mandoline Slicers to giveaway.

Before I go any further I want to say on screen “Please use the finger guard” I don’t want to have nightmares about people losing the ends of their fingers!!! And that little bit of food that gets stuck on the finger guard and can’t be chopped, well that is chefs perk, if it is tasty like carrot, or scraps for the pigs (or the bin) if it is something not so tasty like raw potato. (Actually can pigs eat potato???)

This slicer is excellent, it can slice at 3 thicknesses and can create 2 different sized julienne cuts. I used it to cut my zucchini into wafer thin slices for this Zucchini Carpaccio. Other than the lack of beef this recipe is pretty traditional, olive oil and lemon are used to dress the slices and it is served with some shaved parmesan and a generous amount of black pepper. It is fresh, delicious and the perfect start to a meal.

Author Claire | Sprinkles and Sprouts

Ingredients

  • 3 zucchini (a mixture of green and yellow looks great, but the flavour is just as good with all green)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil - See notes
  • 1 lemon
  • Flaked salt

Instructions

  1. Trim the ends off the zucchini and use a mandolin slicer (or potato peeler) to cut wafer thin rounds of zucchini.
  2. Arrange these on your 4 plates or one serving platter.
  3. Cut the lemon into quarters length ways.
  4. Drizzle olive oil over each plate of zucchini (see notes)
  5. Squeeze a lemon segment over each plate and season generously with salt and black pepper. Alternatively if preparing one large platter, squeeze all the lemon over the platter.
  6. Sprinkle over some shaved parmesan and serve immediately.

    I’d cook the red onion in olive oil over a low heat until softened, then add tons of wild mushrooms and a little garlic and sauté in butter until tender. Then deglaze with the sherry and finish with a little cream. I’d serve it over a simple home made fettuccine pasta as a light lunch.

      Yummy, I think I would have made fresh pasta too.
      Thank you for entering and good luck.

    I’m hoping the brie is in a round otherwise this would make a real cheesy mess! I would stud the brie with slivers of garlic and chorizo lots of black pepper and a splash of lemon juice baked in the oven. I’d steam the asparagus and use them as dippers in the cheesy smoky garlicky goo!

      Kate, that sounds yummy and made me laugh 😉
      Thanks for entering.

    I would make a hearty winter soup by cooking the butternut squash, celery, red onion, zucchini, garlic and baby pots (to help thicken it) in salted water. Then I would fry small sized pieces the chorizo separately in a pan then sprinkle on on top of the blitz veg and drizzle a teaspoon of single cream..

      Thank you.
      Even as a meat lover I demolish this dish, it is simple and fresh.
      And no guilt, which means more espresso martinis 🙂 x

    I’m loving Masterchef, they are so talented, I’d have a go at making a prawn and garlic pizza with a white wine glaze.
    Lovely to have found you Claire and fingers crossed with the new house, I’ll be enjoying following along. x
