Foodie Friday: Awesome Summer Squash

summer squash

I helped out with a cooking demonstration on the OSU campus last month and one of the recipes shown and served was called Awesome Summer Squash. Let me tell you, it IS awesome! Here’s the recipe for you:

Awesome Summer Squash

3 or 4 small summer squash, cut into 1/4 inch rounds
1 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic
Dash of salt
Dash of pepper
Dash dry, red chili flakes
1/4 cup dry white wine (if you don’t like wine, you could use half lemon juice/half water)
1 tbsp goat cheese

Heat the oil in a skillet over high heat. Add squash in a single layer to the pan and brown it. You want the squash to sear, but not get too soft. Once brown, flip and brown the other side. Sprinkle in salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and garlic. Cook until garlic is fragrant, but do not let garlic burn. Burned garlic is not good. Add in wine and simmer. Turn off heat or remove squash to a serving dish. Sprinkle goat cheese evenly over the top.

This dish is so good. If you don’t like goat cheese (or can’t get it  where you live) you could try shaved parmesan or cojita cheese. Ricotta also might be good. This may change the nutrition info.
