    cup maple syrup

Directions

Using a vegetable peeler, cut the vegetables into very thin lengthwise strips. In a large skillet, saute the vegetable strips in butter until tender; remove and set aside. In the same skillet, combine the syrup, orange juice, peel, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; cook for 2-3 minutes or until most of the liquid is evaporated. Return vegetables to pan; toss to coat and sprinkle with pecans. Serve with a slotted spoon.
