Recipe: Simple Zucchini Saute

It's that time of the year when zucchini, yellow squash and all kinds of summer squash are suddenly abundant. You harvest your garden's bounty, blink, and the plants are ready with more! 

Recipes, please!

Here is a super simple way to saute summer squash to have as a side dish. Or, fry an egg for the top and call it a meal. Or toss with some cooked whole grain pasta.

Summer Squash Saute
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • one bell pepper, sliced
  • one onion, sliced
  • two small summer squashes (ex: yellow squash, zucchini squash, zephyr squash, patty pan, etc)
  • Fresh basil
  • 1-2 tablespoons balsamic Vinegar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste 
  1. Preheat a large skillet. Add olive oil and veggies and saute until they were done to your liking (I don't like them mushy). Pour into serving bowl.
  2. To the bowl, add some chopped fresh basil and a sprinkle of the balsamic vinegar. Toss to coat. Oh, and a bit of salt and pepper. Super simple and delicious!
Other options? Grill the veggies and then toss with the balsamic and basil. Or try other herbs. Or throw an eggplant into the mix. This is super flexible!
