Herby Summer Squash

In the mood for a delicious summer meal, but don’t want to wait until June? Try this quick squash side, prepared by Attune Health nutritionist Natalie Fortune!

“This is a dish you’re going to want to eat all spring and summer! The citrus and herbs brighten the dish up, and you can mix and match them to keep the dish interesting,” says Natalie. “As a side dish, this would pair really well with some grilled chicken or fish.”

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 Zucchinis- Sliced into Half Circles
  • 2 Yellow Squashes- Sliced into Half Circles
  • 1 Teaspoon Avocado Oil
  • 2 Cloves Garlic- Minced
  • ¼ Cup of Fresh Herbs (I used mint and dill!)
  • Juice of ½ Lemon

RECIPE:

  1. In a medium skillet (I recommend a cast iron skillet), heat avocado oil over medium heat.
  2. When the oil is hot, add the zucchini slices. Don’t stir them right away, allow the zucchini to caramelize for a few minutes and then stir. Repeat in this manner until the zucchini are fulling cooked and browned.
  3. At this point, add in the minced garlic and fresh herbs. Stir for one minute until the garlic becomes fragrant.
  4. Squeeze in the lemon juice just before serving.
  5. Enjoy!
