Summer Squash Recipes
A chunky zucchini soup, beautifully spiced with a thin, bright, assertive coconut-lime curry broth & a lesson in being adaptable.
A pretty, summer-centric zucchini agrodolce - shredded zucchini doused with a garlic infused agrodolce splash of vinegar, honey, and olive oil, tossed with a good number of other tastes and textures pulled from my cupboards and pantry. Toasted coconut and walnuts add crunch, red onion for bite and assertiveness, a couple of chopped dates, and tiny greens or herbs threaded about.
A nice way to use up a good amount of summer squash. This soup is a soft, pastel shade of yellow, and aside from a hint of tang from the buttermilk, is quite mild in flavor. I finish it with a cumin brown butter drizzle that punches right through the creaminess, and plenty of chopped chives.
A pureed summer squash soup with a buttermilk twist. I used a hint of red pepper, a bit of rosemary for depth, some potato for body, garlic, shallots - and aside from the buttermilk, nothing too far beyond the usual suspects.
A decadent, crunchy-topped summer squash gratin made from thinly sliced summer squash, potatoes, oregano pesto, and brown-buttered breadcrumbs- all baked at high-temperature until the squash is tender and the top is crunchy.
A favorite zucchini bread recipe - green-lined strands of shredded zucchini, lemon zest, poppy seeds, and fragrant notes of coriander, cumin, and clove make this a very special zucchini bread recipe.
This potato salad recipe is what happens when potato salad meets the grill. Grilled potato wedges are tossed with a vinaigrette finished with barely a hint of toasted sesame oil.
The prettiest, tastiest, frittata recipe. Made with potatoes, onions, and eggs drizzled with a cilantro chile sauce.
Simple and delicious, vibrant green spinach and zucchini soup recipe. Light-and-healthy, but still creamy textured and plenty tasty.
A great way to use nutritious quinoa. This quinoa and grilled zucchini recipe is tossed with a pretty, pale green cilantro-flecked avocado dressing.
