The great thing about squash vines is they tend to produce a lot of produce all at once. However, if you suddenly find yourself overwhelmed with a plethora of yellow summer squash, then you might want to take a look at some of the following recipes. There is an assortment and the list includes recipes for lunches, dinners, potlucks, and even desserts. I hope some of them will be to your liking. Of course, don’t forget about the ones I mentioned in my Yellow Squash Recipe for Summer as well!
Cheesy Squash and Zucchini Casserole – All Recipes
I enjoy putting together casseroles, since I can make them on Sunday evening and have them for lunch for a few days during the week. They are real time-savers! For this one, you can use Truvia instead of white sugar if you need/want to. Also, if you are on a gluten-free diet, chop up some cauliflower to use in place of bread crumbs, crushed Rice Chex instead of crackers, and gluten-free baking mix.
Autumn Harvest Stew – Cooks.com
I know it isn’t quite Autumn yet, but the nearer this season is, the more I seem to find excellent recipes for soups and stews. This particular stew has so many wonderful things I love! It’s a great combination of yummy garden veggies and free range chicken and you can utilize any dehydrated green or yellow zucchini you might have on hand. The spices used sound amazing as well.
Pickled Squash – Food Network
If you don’t want to can the pickled squash, you can just follow the squash preparation portion of this recipe and omit putting it all in jars. I love pickled beets, cucumbers, and mini-onions, so I’m sure pickled squash would also appear on my list of pickled foods to try. To add some color to the mix, you can always add some beets to the squash slices and pickle them too.
Chocolate Zucchini Bread – Our Best Bites
I’m always up for new dessert recipes, especially ones that enable me to utilize veggies (fresh or frozen) from my garden…zucchini bread, carrot cake, and pumpkin pie! Even though this recipe is for the green variety of zucchini, you can use the yellow zucchini (yellow summer squash) as well. I’ve made this with half oat flour and half almond flour instead of wheat and it’s turned out very moist. I generally use Truvia in place of both white and brown sugar (make sure to use less Truvia) and my recipes still turn out just fine.
Fried Yellow Squash – Just a Pinch
My husband would eat everything fried, if he could. These little fried summer squash slices are something that even he would adore. They are simple to make, due to the few ingredients needed, and you can use just about any type of flour for the breading. My youngest sister is vegan and when she needs to fry something, she generally uses a bit of olive oil and lots of spices.
Oven Roasted Yellow Squash with Onions – Fat Free Vegan
Speaking of a vegan diet…I came across this recipe and thought it might be a fun one to try. I like the idea of baking foods when possible, especially during the fall. It always heats up the house just enough that I don’t have to light the wood stove!
Summer Squash Bake – Taste of Home
I enjoy putting cheese on just about everything, which is probably what attracted me to this article right away. It also reminded me a lot of the potato-bake I’ve made in the past. I’m thinking about trying this out and seeing if a couple of my anti-veggie family members will eat it. If not, hey, more for me!
Squash Pie – Just a Pinch
My family is big on dessert, even if it’s just a cookie after dinner. I tried to stick to mostly entrees and side dishes in my list of yellow squash recipes, but I just can’t stay away from desserts! So, here’s one for making a pie out of your yellow summer squash. It sounds like a winner to me!
Creamy Zucchini Soup – Yummly
Once again, Fall and soups go hand-in-hand in my family and I couldn’t resist putting this one in the mix. I thought the addition of walnuts and dill might be interesting. I’m not a fan of dill, most of the time, but I’d be willing to give it a try in this soup.
