Ingredients You’ll Need

Yellow Squash

I love fresh yellow squash. You can get it in the summertime at most farmers markets. However, I got these from the grocery store. I used about 5 pieces of large yellow squash.

Seasonings

I used my usual seasonings that have become my go-to. Salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and sometimes sugar. I sometimes will a sugar substitute.

Olive Oil

Get your skillet really hot then add in your oil. I’ll sizzle and give that good char to your squash.

How to Cook Sauteed Yellow Squash

Step one

Slice your squash into slices that are around 1/2 inch thick. Season them evenly with the salt, pepper, sugar, and garlic and onion powders.

Step two

Heat skillet to medium-high heat. Add your olive oil to the skillet once it’s hot. Add in your squash and sauté for several minutes, occasionally stirring. The pieces will start to look softer and lose their crisp, round shape. Sauté’ until all pieces appear to be nice and tender. This should take around 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and serve. Enjoy!
