Today we unearthed two yellow summer squash hidden underneath dark green foliage. I was ecstatic. This is our first picking of veggies besides wax beans and peas.
I learned a very simple way to cook up these tasty treats from my husband's 96 year old Grandmother who lives down in Texas.
Here's what you do:
- Wash and clean your squash. These are little bigger than I normally like, but I am not complaining!
- Remove the ends and slice down the middle. This will prevent rolling squash and make it easier to dice.
- Slice into 1/4 inch pieces.
- In a heated skillet add a little olive oil or butter.
- Add the squash slices. Add 2 Tablespoons of minced garlic (or 1 Tablespoon of garlic powder), cover with pepper, toss in a little salt, and add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water.
- Simmer on medium heat until the squash is tender.
- Serve warm.
I told you that was easy. What's your favorite way to fix summer squash?
