It is a gorgeous day outside, but despite that I am feeling not quite Chippewa. Core muscles are sore from constant dry coughing due to allergies (thanks tree jizz!) and I have a sinus headache on top of it. Since I had three summer squash and three zucchini that needed cooking, I am currently whipping up a big pot of my favorite comfort food.
Boiled Squash (because I seriously have no other name for it and it is what my mama always called it)
- 3 zucchini, sliced in half moons
- 3 summer squash, sliced in half moons
- 1 small bunch of green onions, diced
- 2-3 cloves of minced garlic
- 3 cups of hot or warm water
- 2 packets of Herb Ox no sodium chicken broth
- dried dill weed
- salt and pepper to taste
- drizzle of honey
- bacon salt if you wish, but if you use it cut back on the salt
- 2 tbl unsalted butter
Add everything to a big stock pot, bring to a boil then turn heat down and simmer until the squash is almost translucent. I do not know exactly how long this takes as I have never paid any attention to the time, heh.
Once it has finished cooking, add the butter, spices and honey and stir well. Fill a bowl and proceed to stuff into your cake hole.
Grated parmesan is also good in here as well as a can of corn or some frozen corn. Even some beans and bacon bits added with the corn to make a succotash type meal is great. Calling this a recipe is a total stretch, but I wanted to share my favorite comfort food with the internet…though I have a feeling I have shared it on here before. If only all my comfort foods were so calorie friendly…
