Slicing carrots with a vegetable peeler transforms them into pasta-like ribbons. Cook them with peas and a pat of butter for unexpectedly luscious results.


  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 6 carrots (about 12 ounces), sliced into long strips with a vegetable peeler

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen peas, thawed


  1. In a medium saucepan, heat butter over medium. Add carrots; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally with a rubber spatula, until crisp-tender, 6 to 8 minutes.

  2. Add peas; cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper.
