- 2 zucchini (about 5 cm [2 in] thick), green or yellow
- 1 cup ricotta
- 2 tbsp maple syrup (preferably golden syrup, for its delicate flavour)
- 1/4 tsp salt (or less, to your taste)
- 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
- 2 tbsp chives, chopped
- Ground pepper, to taste
- Espelette pepper
- Use a vegetable peeler or mandoline to slice the zucchini lengthwise into ribbons 1-2 mm (about 1/16 in) thick.
- Place ribbons onto a clean cloth and allow to dry.
- In a small bowl, combine the ricotta, maple syrup, parsley, chives, and salt and pepper. Adjust the seasonings as you see fit.
- Spread a thin layer of the ricotta mixture onto each zucchini strip. Roll them up and place vertically onto your serving plate. Sprinkle with Espelette pepper and garnish with sprigs of parsley or chives.
