TIPS & RECIPE IDEAS

Sunburst Squash

"Sunburst squash are a heritage variety of summer squash related to the pattypan squash. The sunburst varietal is short and round, with slightly scalloped edges and a characteristic orange-yellow color. Use sunburst squash in any recipe that calls for summer squash. The bright, sunny color for which it is named will help the dish to pop, making it a feast for the eyes as well as a savory treat for your taste buds."

Picking just a few recipes for pattypan squash was hard! I chopped up and sauteed one last week with olive oil, onions, and garlic and it was fabulous. But this week I learned there are so many delicious sounding, creative ways to enjoy this summer squash...including one that doesn't even require cooking! I hope you enjoy checking out these recipes as much as I did.

Zucchini

Always good fried or turned into chocolate chip zucchini bread, here are two completely different recipes to try with this summer staple.

Parsley

Here's a simple way to preserve your parsley into a beautiful sauce that has many uses.

Swiss Chard

Not familiar with this veggie? Here's some interesting info!

"Swiss chard leaves are low in calories and nutrient dense. While you can eat young, tender chard leaves raw in salads for the full nutritional benefit, they tend to have a bitter taste and are more often cooked in order to mellow out the bitterness and make them easier to digest. When cooked, they still offer tons of nutritional value in the form of vitamins A, C, E, and K, along with not insignificant amounts of fiber, magnesium, iron, and potassium."
