Squash! So Simple & Delicious

This is my Mom's recipe for squash. It is so easy, and so delicious, I just can't get over it.  I have done it with butter, and with expeller pressed coconut oil (for my little one) and both came out just as good as the other!  This time I added one crookneck squash to two regular yellow squash.  I will try it with pattypan squash tomorrow and if you try it with zucchini, let me know!

Mom's Squash Recipe

diced onion - I used half a small onion for 3 medium sized squash, but your choice
squash - chopped in large chunks - mine were about 1.5" - 2" long
butter or expeller pressed coconut oil
sea salt
pot or pan with lid

Put just enough butter or oil in pan to saute chopped onions. Saute onions until transparent. Add squash. Cover and cook on medium to low heat until desired tenderness. The amounts you can figure out. No liquid is needed because squash will make its own.


  1. This is my favorite way to have squash. I learned it from my mom, as well. We call it smothered squash and I could probably eat my weight in it. :)

  2. Dana Carpenter makes a similar recipes. She adds nutmeg and it really makes it pop!


I love to hear from you! Please let me know how you changed a recipe, and how it came out. I don't do nutritional information anymore, sorry! I just provide the *free* recipes. I try to reply to comments but don't have much time these days. I hope to revamp this site eventually.... but for now I am still a working Mom and this is my hobby.
