Simple Sautéed Squash is such an easy and delicious side dish! Low Carb, Gluten Free and only 3 simple ingredients that cook up quickly!
We love squash. We love it boiled, roasted, or made into zoodles (Try Lemon Dill Shrimp and Zuchinni Noodles!). And we love it as Simple Sautéed Squash.
Sometimes we use the yellow squash and sometimes we use green zucchini. It doesn’t matter.
Leave the peel on, peel it completely or peel it to leave zebra stripes; whatever you like. The zebra stripes leaves on some of the nutritious peel without being too much. I usually do it that way.
If the squash is especially big, it is better to cut the seeds out. Otherwise, they are fine left in there.
Peel as you wish, cut off the ends, cut into quarters and then dice into bite sized pieces.
I love the simplicity of this recipe. I keep a mixture of equal parts of salt, pepper and garlic powder in a container so it is easy to grab and use. This recipe is already very easy but that makes it even easier!
There is so much you can do with squash! And it is a good thing because if you have a garden, or your neighbor has a garden, or your parents have a garden. . . you get the idea. It is wonderfully prolific stuff!
