I've become a huge fan of zucchini -- and spaghetti squash recently.... Tonight was my first time cooking yellow squash. I asked my mom how to prepare it and I used her idea exactly... It's nothing revolutionary - nothing new.... But I'm posting it here to hopefully share something maybe some others hadn't thought about as a healthy side dish option for dinner. This is so low cal, I'm going to have to start eating it more often!! Not only low cal, it's super tasty too! Win-Win!
2 medium Yellow Squash - I sliced and then cut slices into quarters.
a few onion rings - roughly sliced.
Sea salt & pepper
emeril's original essence
nonstick cooking spray
Heat skillet/frying pan over med-high heat. Spray with non stick cooking spray. Add onions, salt & pepper -- cook for 2-3 minutes - until tender, then add in squash. Spray with cooking spray, and sprinkle with Emeril's Original Essence. Cook until tender.
This makes 2 large servings or 4 smaller servings -- so low cal, go ahead, have a large serving!! Nutrition information is for the entire recipe, so divide by two for two larger servings, or by 4 for four smaller servings.
