End of Summer's Bounty

Summer squash - including zucchini and yellow squash - is plentiful right now, but it's easy to run out of ideas for what to make with it. Instead of trying another zucchini bread recipe or trying to hide the squash in baked goods, test what one of our Early Childhood Center cooks whipped up...

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, cut the squash into bite-sized pieces, toss the squash in a small amount of vegetable oil and bake for 30 or 40 minutes. You're welcome to adjust the seasoning and incorporate spices to taste. The children in our program love this recipe because the squash loses its watery quality and gains a level of sweetness.

Hopefully this simple recipe will help you use up leftover squash that might be in your walk-in and introduce squash in a bright, straightforward way!
