To shave carrot and zucchini into ribbons, lay vegetable flat on a counter or cutting board. Using vegetable peeler, peel along the length of the vegetable to create a ribbon. Repeat the process, rotating as necessary, until the vegetable is too thin to peel. To shave the butternut squash, cut the squash half in half lengthwise. Use the vegetable peeler to shave long slices along the cut side. Reserve any vegetable ends that cannot be shaved for stocks, soups or sauces.
