Cooking Squash

My favorite way of cooking squash is so simple and yet so delicious. Of all the yellow squash recipes, this is the one I make the most often.

Amounts vary depending on how much you want.

  • yellow squash
  • zucchini squash (optional - sometimes I mix them together)
  • butter
  • water
  • salt

Ready? This is really easy. Slice squash into 1/4 inch rounds.

Put 2 Tablespoons of water into a microwave steamer (or use a stove top steamer with a couple cups of water) and cook squash for 8 minutes or so. Remove from steamer basket (if you actually cooked it in water instead of above the water, drain the water off)

Now take 1/2 stick of butter (or more) depending on how much summer squash you've cooked, and chop and work the butter into the squash breaking it apart. Sprinkle generously with salt to your taste.

Love, love to make this yellow summer squash recipe, and I hope anyone who might be intimidated by cooking squash, will see that simple = yummy.
