One of the things I like the most about the fall season is the produce coming out of the garden. The other day we stopped by a farmer’s market. We stocked up on some onions and spaghetti squash. While at the market, I also found a squash that I had never tried. It is a sweet meat squash. It looks like a medium sized bluish-green pumpkin. The flesh (once cooked) is smooth and creamy, without any stringy strands.
My first recipe is pretty straight forward. It is just diced sweet meat squash with garlic and onion.
- 1/2 Sweet Meat Squash cut into 3/4 inch cubes (about 6 cups)
- 1 medium onion
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
- Salt & Pepper to taste (optional)
- Cut sweet meat into cubes and place into bowl.
- Dice onion and add to sweet meat.
- Add garlic and mix together.
- Sprinkle with olive oil to lightly coat the vegetables.
- Place into 9×13 baking dish and cover with foil or parchment.
- Bake at 350 F for 45 minutes or until tender.
Serve hot with steamed rice.
