Squash and Tomato Saute

Yellow crookneck squash and tomatoes

For my low-carb people, here is a nice side dish that pairs well with roasted chicken, turkey, meatloaf or cooked hamburger. It heats up well in the microwave or in the Hot Logic mini oven/lunchpail. (see https://myhotlogic.com for more info on this device.) And it is so colorful!

SQUASH-TOMATO SAUTE (2-3 servings)

  • Two tablespoons of pure olive oil
  • One large yellow crookneck squash, sliced crosswise
  • One medium sweet yellow onion, peeled and chopped
  • Two small on-the-vine tomatoes, chopped
  • Approximately 1 to 1 1/2 cups water
  • One small package of fresh dill, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. In a medium saucepan, heat olive oil and add squash and onion. Saute for four minutes, constantly stirring.
  2. Add tomatoes and saute for one minute more.
  3. Add enough water to cover. Mix in minced dill plus salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Cover, and simmer for 10 minutes. Add additional water if needed.
  5. Serve immediately.
