One of the first lessons gardeners learn is it only takes a couple of summer squash or zucchini plants to provide a bounty. The challenge for the gardener/cook then becomes how does one take advantage of the bounty without boring everyone at the dinner table. With Cee Dub’s ‘Dutch Oven Steamed Summer Veggies’, as a baseline so to speak, the cooks imagination is the only limiting factor in utilizing an over abundance of yellow summer squash for healthy colorful recipes. Besides adding different garden veggies to the mix one can utilize different herbs, seasonings, or liquids for steaming.
For a more ‘elegant’ spin on this simple recipe first steam the veggies then serve with a balsamic or raspberry vinaigrette.
