I agree! I'm loving summer squash and zucchini - I've eaten more in the past 6 months than in the past 2 decades combined!!.
My current favorite is Parmesan Squash Saute..
Slice up summer squash and zucchini, add your allotted onion amount, saute with salt, pepper and garlic for 6-8 minutes. When it's nicely sauted, sprinkle with chopped tomato and 2 Tbsp. Parmesan Cheese - let it melt a second..
For grins I sometimes add 5 ounces of chicken sliced up and then melt 1 ounce of mozzarella (low fat) over it.....
Ooooohhh, that sounds yummy!!! I am drooling on my keyboard!!!! I have to be careful with cheese though, it's my downfall. I could eat a cup of cheese while I fix my meal!!! Not good!!!..
Wow! I just tried cooking summersquash (I thought it was an idea off of this thread but maybe it was somewhere else) and it was FANTASTIC! I just sliced it thin tossed it with a *little* olive oil, salt and pepper and a little of the Pampered Chef Rosemary seasoning, spread it out in a single layer on a non-stick cookie pan and baked it in a 450' oven for 15 minutes. I am NOT a veggie fan but I have to say, I am looking forward to making this again!..
Wow, for the past 2 1/2 months on this diet, I have been eating Winter squash twice a week not realizing it was not on the official list. It has 11g of carbs per serving but I don't know if this is high compared to other similar vegetables?.
The only other veg I needed to give up is carrots ; >..
Tonight I made zucchini ROSTI. The original is with potato..
Grate zucchini (about 2 cups worth).
Add one egg (or better yet add M/F eggs).
You need to have a new non stick small frying pan(so you use less oil).
Spray with a little Pam..
Let pan heat up a little..
Take about half of zucchini and add it to pan and shape into a pancake..
Fry it until it is a golden brown..
Pass it onto a plate then put the pan upside down onbto the pan and flip it over VERY FAST..
Fry second side until golden brown.
Repeat this with the second portion..
You can top it off with:.
Bacon bits(fresh and cut into bits).
Salt and pepper.
Or all of the above!!!.
Rosti is a Swiss dish that I learned to cook from my relatives in Switzerland..
I can make this into a real feast if I choose to. But I also try to make as lean as possible.
By using a new non stick frying pan..
Traditionally Rosti is cooked with potato and then you add special Swiss cheeses and various other things!(my husband REALLY loves this dish)..
Kristen, your veggie dish yummy and I can't wait to cook some up! I just tried the mashed cauliflower tonite and it was incrediable!Thanks for the recipe..
Try grilling your zucchini and squash slices. I've done this on the George Foreman grill with Pam spay, garlic salt and parsley seasonings. Taste like grilled veggies when dining out...
With my previous squash recipe - start keeping an eye on the after about 8-10 minutes. I cut mine real thin and wasn't thinking and burnt them to a crisp! WAAAAHHH! I also had two sheets in there so I think that had something to do with it.....
I slice up the squash (long direction) season with greek seasoning and put on cookie sheet (lined with aluminum foil and sprayed with butter flavored Pam). Spray top of squash with the pam and bake in a hot oven until browned. You can put on low broil to brown up when they start getting soft. You can do the same thing putting them on the grill and turning often. What a treat!..
Wow! I am a squash lover, but usually eat it steamed..
But, ya'll have given me some great ideas!!!!!.
I like to saute sliced zucchini with red onion and garlic. It's also good to add tomato sauce (or WF marinara, if you want to)...
