A Healthy Quick Dinner Recipe – Squash Medley

Sometimes we get into a green bean and salad rut, unable to imagine 5 vegetables a day. Studies show that fruits and vegetables are an vital part of our diet, with anti-aging properties as well as fighting cancer and heart disease. It is really simple to find quick and simple vegetable recipes that are tasty and appealing with a small advance plotting.

Though called summer squash, fresh yellow squash and zucchini are really available year round. They are stout free, rich in Vitamin C and very low in calories. In the fight to get more fruits and vegetables on the table, this quick and healthy dinner vegetable recipe is a clear winner.

This Squash Medley is a mixture of zucchini and yellow summer squash. You can use either one alone if you must, but mixing them contributes to the flavors and visual appeal. You want to cook the squash only until barely fork tender, not mushy. Stir in the oregano as you take the squash off the heat. As a variation, my family also likes this with an onion added to the squash and some parmesan cheese thrown in with the oregano, but that’s another meal.
