ONION, SQUASH, & TOMATO STEAM POT

Into a deep Steamer Tray, layer sliced Squash, then sliced Onion, then sliced Tomato. Between layers, sprinkle Matzo Meal, Toasted Breadcrumbs, or Rolled Oats. Also between layers, sprinkle Salt, and Grind on a bit of your favorite Pepper Blend.

Then, just steam until it's done. I usually just spoon it directly onto the plates from the Steamer Tray, and add Olive Oil as I'm plating.

The Onion, of course, should be sliced before anything else happens. This allows the special Onion chemicals to oxidize and stabilize, so that the flavor and nutrition will better survive cooking.

Make some squash pickle. It is kind of like a bread & butter except with squash.

You can google the recipe and they are easy to make.

We are not crazy over the squash pickles but make awesome squash relish.

These all sound so good! Mine's pretty simple. I guess you could almost say it's plain compared to some of these others. For what it's worth, here it is.

1 medium zucchini, sliced
2 medium yellow squash or one large - however much you want to use
1 medium onion, sliced
3 tbsp margarine
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp pepper

In large skillet over medium-high heat melt the margarine. Add the onion, cook 2-3 mins or until softened. Add squashes and spices. Cook until crisp-tender. If you like your squash softer, just cook it for a little longer.

Enjoy.

How about stuffed? There's a Middle Eastern recipe for stuffed zucchini with rice and meat inside. I admit I did not get around to making it, but it looks delicious. It is probably possible to make it with yellow squash instead of zucchini. The dish is originally from Egypt, but is eaten all around the Middle East.

Here are a couple of variations of the recipe:
Grace Abad: KOUSA MIHSHI
Kousa Mahshi
Egyptian Stuffed Vegetables Mashi) Recipe - Food.com - 109182
Middle Eastern Stuffed Squash | A Recipe from Nily - efoodi
Middle Eastern Kousa Mahshi Recipe

It looks like a zucchini corer might come in handy to take out the middle of the squash.

usually stuffed squash is made from Zucchini because yellow squash doesn't bet large enough. If it does it would have no flavor. I have been making stuffed Zucchini for years. It is basically the same as a stuffed bell pepper.

I like to slice it in half the long way, skewer them, and spray with olive oil Pam. Then, I top with cracked pepper and a italian seasonings. Put on the grill and turn once, until tender. Easy Peasy!!! There is also a lemon seasoning in the seasoning aisle I like to sprinkle on them sometimes.

You can do them in the oven as well.

I love sliced summer squash steamed til just tender, then add butter to melt on top, and cracked pepper. Sublime.

Yes, this is my all time favorite way to cook summer squash but I also add a couple tablespoons, or just to taste, of your favorite salsa just before serving. It adds just enough spices to bring out the good flavors of the squash! Yummy!
