Steamed Squash with Italian Herbs

by admin

Finding new ways to cook and season simple vegetable side dishes is always a challenge. Steaming is quick, easy and it preserves nutrients.

1-3 crook-neck yellow squash per person
Italian seasoning
sea salt
olive oil or organic butter

  • Place pan with steamer insert and 1″-2″ water on medium burner
  • Wash squash well
  • Slice into rounds
  • Place squash into pan; steam 3-5 minutes until tender yet still firm
  • Remove to bowl (or back into pan without steamer or water – the pan will be warm and there’s only one thing to wash)
  • Drizzle lightly with olive oil or toss with chunks of organic butter
  • Season with sea salt and Italian seasoning (or simply oregano, basil and marjoram)
