Recipe: Sautéed Zucchini, Onion, and Yellow Squash
This was Brother O’Mara’s suggestion for a side dish to go with the pork chops, so I let him prepare it. It’s funny, he grew up eating these particular veggies cooked in this particular manner, while it never would have occured to me to make something like this. Of course, he says the same about many of the dishes I make, which is one of the reasons it’s so much fun to share a home with someone–we each, literally, bring such different things to the table.
Anyway, here’s how he told me to do it. Simple simple.
Sauteed Zucchini, Onion, and Yellow Squash
1 zucchini, sliced
1 yellow squash, sliced
1/2 purple onion, chopped
sugar, salt, and freshly ground pepper to taste
1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Toss in the veggies, season with salt, pepper, and sugar, and cook over medium heat until the zucchini is soft (it takes longer to cook than the squash, so he lets it be the indicator).
We served this over a bed of instant couscous from a box and it was scrumptious!
Thanks, Brother O’Mara.
