Fennel and Carrot Confit of katia - Recipefy

2 medium carrots
1 small fennel bulb, stalks discarded
1 1/4 cups olive oil
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
2 (3-by 1-inch) strips lemon zest, very thinly sliced

1. Shave carrots with a vegetable peeler into very thin, wide ribbons. Quarter fennel bulb lengthwise, then very thinly slice lengthwise.
Heat oil with cayenne, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a 1-quart heavy saucepan over low heat until warm.
Add carrots, fennel, and zest and cook gently, without simmering, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are just tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain oil into a bowl (see cooks’ note, below) and transfer vegetables to another bowl to cool to room temperature.
cooks' notes:
•Confit can be made 1 day ahead and chilled. Bring to room temperature before serving.
•The oil left over from cooking the vegetables can be used in salad dressings or to flavor soups.
