    Chef #928625's Note:

    This is my favorite way to cook yellow squash.I think the cumin and butter really play up the fresh ,subtly sweet flavor.It really doesn't get easier than this.Serve with a Mexican /Southwest meal.You could play around with this and even make it Indian style to go with a curry.Yield is approximate.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 2-4



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 large yellow squash
    • 1/4 cup diced onion (optional)
    • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seed (whole or slightly crushed)
    • 2 tablespoons real butter
    • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
    • salt, to taste


    1. 1
      Thinly slice the squash,about 1/4 inch thick,cutting the larger rounds in half.dice onions.
    2. 2
      Heat a medium skillet on medium -high,add cumin seeds and stir constantly until they start to brown a bit ,and maybe 'pop'.this takes less than a minute -don't walk away!
    3. 3
      Immediately add butter and onions,turn down heat to medium,,and let onions brown a bit just for a minute or two.
    4. 4
      Add squash,salt and pepper.cover and cook,stirring when necessary,until done to taste.I cook mine for about 6 minutes,but you may want to cook them for about 10 minutes if you like very soft squash.

      I loved the easy and delicious recipe. I crushed my cumin seeds. The cumin flavor really adds to the already great taste of summer squash. I cooked my squash a bit quicker so it would be overly soft. Thanx for shring!
