Sautéed Squash Slices

logo-5aday_small02

Hello. Here's more fruit and vegetable news you can really enjoy. This is the season for winter squash and whilst they are often roasted, you can also swiftly cook these slices on the griddle. I prefer butternut squash for this recipe. Use a peeler to remove the skin and a sharp knife to cut into slices, about ¼-inch thick. Combine ½ cup flour with ¼ teaspoon each of salt, pepper, dried basil, and oregano. Shake the squash slices in a bag with this seasoned flour. Spray the griddle or non-stick pan with olive oil and sauté the squash until brown, over moderate heat. Dust with parsley and serve. This is much quicker than roasting and it's a delicious winter side dish. Eight slices makes 1½ vegetable servings. So, go on, do yourself a flavor. Enjoy your 5 or more servings of fruits and vegetables every day.
