Local Summer Squash Season has Arrived (finally)

Sauteed summer squash is like candy to me.  IF…it is a) local b) fresh c) minimally cooked.  I like it just how I prepared it below.

Simple Satisfying Summer Squash
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Side dish
Serves: 2-3
  • 2 squash or zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 1T EVOO
  • 1T coconut oil
  • One garlic clove finely chopped
  • Fresh chives
  • Lemon wedges
  • S&P
  1. Heat a skillet to medium heat with the evoo and coconut oil. When it sizzles, add the garlic and sauté for about a minute. (You don’t want the garlic to burn or it will taste bitter). Throw in the zucchini or squash and add salt and pepper. I like the squash to brown so I don’t really mess with it a lot once I throw it in. Let it cook for about 7-10 minutes then move around the pan and flip so it cooks evenly. Finish it off with fresh chives and a squeeze of lemon juice. Boom.
