Sauteed Yellow Squash

Posted by Caveman Cooking on January 9, 2010

A very easy, healthy, and delicious side dish that goes well with just about any meal.


2 Large Yellow Squash
1/2 Sweet Onion
1 Tbsp. Minced Garlic
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper to tatse


Mince garlic, chop squash into 1/2 inch semi-circles, and cut onion into 1-2 inch long 1/4″ strips. Set aside.

In a large non-stick skillet heat oil over high flame (if using a regular pan double the amount of oil). Add garlic and saute quickly (less than a minute). Add squash and onions, salt and pepper to taste. Saute until onions become translucent (about 2-3 minutes).

Serve as a vegetable side dish with almost any main course you can think of. Just in case you were wondering, yes, I over cooked this batch slightly! 😉 But, it was still gooooood!!

Prep Time = 10 minutes
Cook Time = 5 minutes
Serves 2-4

    Oh, that photo is a real beauty! Funny, I was just thinking about squash yesterday (haven’t had it since summer) and now here’s a lovely recipe with photos that make my mouth wather. Thank you, Caveman! I’m off to the green grocer!


  2. OK, you’ve gone and done it again. Tasty, tasty, tasty, one of my favorite veggies. Your photos are excellent, mind my asking what camera you are using?
    Take care caveman,
    Cheers, PT

    • Thank you so much, PT!
      Some of the shots are taken with a Canon PowerShot S5 IS. Though, more recently, most of the shots are taken with an EOS Digital Rebel XSi 12.2MP mounted with either a Canon 50mm portrait lens or a nice Canon 17-55mm lens. Either of which makes a huge difference! Much less post-production needed when using a tool like that. It helps having a pro-photog in the cave, too! 😉

    I’m a big fan of squash and love it grilled or roasted– looks super easy on the stovetop, too!
