Summer squash is a Southern tradition- but we always steam ours, instead of cooking in oil. Use small, tender squash, and enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb yellow squash, sliced 1/2 inch thick
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 12 teaspoon seasoned pepper (such as Lawry's)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

Directions

  1. Combine sliced squash & chopped onion in a wire steamer basket, place over gently boiling water. Cover, & let steam.
  2. 10-12 minutes, until squash is fork-tender. Remove squash and onion to a large serving dish.
  3. Immediately stir in margarine, pepper, and sugar. Serve hot.

Perfect in every way! Love the sweet onion, and the whole package was just delightful! I added some fresh basil (chopped) and some beautiful curly parsley (it jumped in all on it's own!) and this made a beautiful, wonderfully balanced squash dish!

Very good! I'm from the south, so I'm used to eating yellow squash in every form imaginable! This had a little more sugar than I am used to, but it is delicious. Thanks for sharing!
