Better Bites: Zucchini and Squash

Zucchini and Squash

It's that time of year, the time where you start having fresh vegetables either from your own garden, or at the Farmer's Market or even your local markets. It is so easy to eat healthy and fresh during the summer!

One of my favorite side dishes during the summer, when squash and zucchini are in season, is a very simple dish that utilizes the naturally buttery taste of the squashes, paired with a sweet onion, that makes the perfect side dish or main course that tastes decadent, but is anything but.

I'll say it again...Who says eating healthily has to be boring?

What You'll Need:
3 zucchini, cut in half and then sliced
3 yellow squash, cut in half and then sliced
1 sweet or red onion, chopped
Sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Extra virgin olive oil

Zucchini and Squash: Ready to Cook

In a large pot over medium heat add zucchini, squash, onion, a pinch of sea salt, some freshly ground black pepper and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. (Note: You don't need more than a tablespoon or two of oil at most.) Stir ingredients to coat and cook over medium heat until squashes and onion are tender.

See how easy and quick that was? Quick, easy and delicious...Now that's my kind of dish!

Notes: You can eat this as a side dish or you can serve it over rice as a main course.

This recipe is great! I normally put water in my pot resulting in soggy squash so I had to try this method...no more water in my pot!

I used to add water too, but thought I'd try it one time without the water and I've never gone back! Glad you enjoyed this!
